  1. [photogrammetry] In photogrammetry, the process of adjusting the parameters of image support data in order to get an accurate transformation between the image and the ground. This process is based on a calculated relationship between overlapping images, control points, the camera model, and topography, and then computing a transformation for a block (or group) of images. With aerial digital data, image adjustment consists of three key components: tie points, ground control points, and aerial triangulation.
