This paper presents a study that was conducted to determine the orientation of ALOS (Advanced Land Observing Satellite) PRISM (Panchromatic Remote-sensing Instrument for Stereo Mapping) triplet images, considering the estimation of interior orientation parameters (IOP) of the cameras and using the collinearity equations with the UCL (University College of London) Kepler platform model, which was adapted to use coordinates referenced to the Terrestrial Reference System ITRF97. The results of the experiments showed that the accuracies of 3D coordinates calculated using 3D photogrammetric intersection increased when the IOP were also estimated. The vertical accuracy was significantly better than the horizontal accuracy. The usability of the estimated IOP was tested to perform the bundle block adjustments of another neighbouring PRISM image triplet. The results in terms of 3D photogrammetric intersection were satisfactory and were close to those obtained in the IOP estimation experiment. View Full-Text
