satellite sensors map the Earth’s surface properties. However,
haze from water vapor and aerosol particles influence the recorded signal.
In addition, in rugged terrain, varying illumination conditions (sunny and
shady slopes) modify the "true" spectral behavior of surfaces.
Atmospheric correction with ATCOR eliminates atmospheric and
stands for ATmospheric CORrection and is a Leica Geosystems GIS &
Mapping software solution.
GEOSYSTEMS GmbH, the German Leica Geosystems reseller, integrated ATCOR
into ERDAS IMAGINE®.
