Purpose: Program for aligning existing maplets with imaging data from a single image.

Autoregister will add landmarks to a single image. It provides basic tools for aligning the landmarks, deleting them and setting flags. When you accept the changes from the Auto align, it will update the S/C position and pointing and save it into SUMFILES. When changes are made, they are immediately accepted (i.e. there is no save option).


  • IMAGEFILES/ - a directory containing the image .DAT files;

  • SUMFILES/ - a directory containing the image .SUM files (updated solution image, S/C and camera information; lmrks and limbs);

  • MAPFILES/ - a directory containing the full suite of maplets;

  • LMKFILES / - a directory containing the full suite of landmarks;

  • SHAPEFILES/ - if required for comparison with a shape model;

  • LMRKLIST.TXT - a list of landmarks;

  • PICTLIST.TXT - a list of images.



  • SUMFILES/ - S/C and camera information are updated as image shifts are made. The user can discard these changes upon quit. ??Detected landmarks and limbs are added to the SUMFILE??;

  • LMKFILES/ - ????

  • MAPFILES/ - ????

Using auto register

Input stdin

  • Image name
    • Note: The image name is the name that is stored in IMAGES. Some versions of process_img will make some changes to the filename, so it may not be the "original name.

  • It will list all the current landmarks that the image has.

 Add landmarks? (y/n)
  • Then it will ask you if you want to add more. If you do want to add more, it will ask you for the fractional width. Use the typical 0.5. When it asks about rejecting invisibles, normally we just hit return.

 enter fractional width (0=center) .5
 Reject invisibles? (y/n) n

    1   CB0001    0.00
    2   CB0002    0.00

  • LMRK_DISPLAY1 - 100x100 pixel of images and maplets. Unlike LITHOS, each pair is a separate landmark, consisting of a completely different location on the surface and image.
  • TEMPFILE.pgm - An pgm image of the image that we are working with.
  • LMKFILES - Updated the LMK file to contain the image that you are working with.
  • SUMFILES - Adds the new landmarks into the image's SUMFILE. Also, if you accept the suggested changes in auto align, it will update the position of the image.

Example of LMRK_DISPLAY1.pgm


Notes from PowerPoint

Alternative Description

  • Cross-correlated new images to existing maplets
  • Similar to REGISTER, but can handle 3D, orientation, and twist
