Block 8 - Geometry Residuals
Geometry is a very power and necessary tool in SPC in order to update the spacecraft position. Once done, the position and pointing of the spacecraft is significantly improved so that the calculations with residuals is more accurate.
- You have invoked a Bourne-Again Shell (bash) on ormacsrv1.lpl.arizona.edu
Step 1- Ensure Stability
Ensure that there are no major problems with the shape model.
Correlations of all landmarks are fixed. You can run support/batchCheck <fileList> to check this. This runs lithos and checked each landmark's images' correlation and stars. You can also use support/evalLog.sh. This would be required to be done after an iteration, based on the <landmark>.OOT log files.
- Landmarks have sufficient images (3)
- Images have sufficient landmarks (3)
echo 5 .005 .0002 | residuals # 5 is static, .005 should be 4*acceptable RMS error, .0002 is the pixel size of the highest resolution image grep ">" PICTINFO.TXT
- Review the output.
Run autoregister on that list of images, most likely by hand to fix whatever issues there are.
- If you cannot get 3 or more landmarks, tuck the images
lithos Main Menu: Q 0123O IUCRSG NVAMBX DEPL FZH? >p p Input 12-character picture name. <PICTNM> 0. No change 1. Tuck it away 2. Ingore image in Vlm 1
Step 2 - Prep for geometry
- Backup your working directory
rsync --exclude=*DAT -hapvP . <path>backup-<date>
Step 3 - Run Geometry
Running geometry is pretty simple, but it is very powerful. In this case, we will do an update of the central vector first. It is unlikely that it is needed because lithosP usually does this a lot, but it doesn't hurt. Then we run camera pointing, SCOBJ, which moves the spacecraft and its pointing. This updates the SUMFILES.
geometry 1: landmark vectors. 2: camera pointing, scobj 0: end. input operation list 120 enter number of iterations 15 use limbs for pointing? (y/n) y continue? (y/n) n
Step 4 - Review
echo 5 .005 .0002 | residuals # 5 is static, .005 should be 4*acceptable RMS error, .0002 is the pixel size of the highest resolution image grep ">>" RESIDUALS.TXT grep ">" PICINFO.TXT
- If you have errors in RESIDUALS.TXT, you will need to look for the specifics with RESIDUALS.TXT itself. If the error is in an overlap (it only lists 6 characters), you can ignore this.
- You should expect many more errors in PICINFO.TXT, and when you go into the landmark, you won't be able to find a problem. For this step, focus on the worst values
