Birds-of-a-Feather: Stereo and Topography

Birds-of-a-feather session outside normal meeting hours to discuss methods for the generation of topographic data including applications like NASA Stereo-pipeline, Socet GXP, etc.

So there a lot of resources to review for this session.

From our meeting:

ASP (OpenPlanetary, PDW/PSIDA)

LSIC (Workshop on Lunar Mapping for Precision Landing)

Socet SET (derived samples)

Stereophotoclinometry (SPC)


  • see above but so many to list HRSC, LOLA, CTX-stereo, Cassis, Dawn, Vesta, Puto, MOLA, JAXA Kaguya TC-stereo, in-situ stereo, …

Papers (just a sampling)
