25 October 2010 DSM from ALOS data: the case of Andritsena, Greece

One of the newest satellite sensors with stereo collection capability is ALOS. ALOS has a panchromatic radiometer with 2.5m spatial resolution at nadir. According to the specifications its extracted data will provide a highly accurate digital surface model (DSM). Panchromatic Remote-sensing Instrument for Stereo Mapping (PRISM) has three independent optical systems for viewing nadir, forward and backward producing a stereoscopic image along the satellite's track. Each telescope consists of three mirrors and several CCD detectors for push-broom scanning. The nadir-viewing telescope covers a width of 70km; forward and backward telescopes cover 35km each. Two ALOS data sets collected over the same area within a year were used. The same ground control points were used for the creation of the two DSMs. The two DSMs were compared to elevation data from different sources: 1/50.000 topographic maps and airphotos stereo-pair. The area of study is the broader area of Andritsena, Western Peloponnese, Greece. After a first control for random or systematic errors a statistical analysis was done. Points of known elevation have been used to estimate the accuracy of the DSMs. The elevation difference between the different DSMs was calculated. 2D RMSE, correlation and the percentile value were also computed and the results are presented.
