Title: Method of orthoimage color correction using multiple aerial images

Abstract: A method for true-orthoimage color correction is provided. Aerial images and digital elevation models (DEMs) are used for balancing colors in orthoimages or true-orthoimages. Seam lines between images are also smoothed. Thus, color distinction between images is rectified and orthoimage quality is greatly enhanced.
