Setting the Options and Finishing the Calibration - Tutorial

The bottom of the Image Registration and Warping dialog contains the warping and resampling methods. Typically, you should accept the default Warp Method and Resample Method unless you are familiar with specific warping or resampling methods. The Warp Method should be Affine Polynomial and the Resample Method should be Bilinear Interpolation.


The Coordinate System and Image Extents can also be set for the image. If the image is in a projected system, select Specify in the Specify Coordinate System section and click the Coordinate System button. This image is not in a coordinate system, so leave the Use Current selected. If a smaller portion of the image should be used, uncheck the Automatic Image Extents box in the Specify Image Extents section. Click the Set Extents button to set the limits. For this project, leave the Automatic Image Extents checked.


The dialog settings should be similar to the above settings before clicking OK.


For the tutorial example, the Total RMS value is not critical, but you might want to watch this value closely when you are working on an actual project. The Total RMS value is located on the right side of the dialog above the Un-referenced button. For further information on RMS errors, refer to the RMS Calibration Settings topic and the online help book, RMS Error.


Click OK in the Image Registration and Warping dialog to use the current settings and finishing importing the image.
