New method for automatic geometric rectification based on image matching in remote sensing image is proposed,which can solve the problem of lower-precision and time-consumption in traditional manual geometric rectification.First,the pictures contained ground control points (GCPs) are gained in the remote sensing image which has been processed with basic geometric correction method.Secondly,the accurate matching between remote sensing image and GCPs pictures are found.Then,the outliers of GCPs are detected.Finally,the remote sensing image is precisely corrected by the GCPs.Also in this paper,a new multicriterion image matching algorithm is proposed to detect precise matching.The experimental results demonstrate the robustness and effectiveness of the proposed automatic geometric rectification method.

Key words:  Image matching      Multicriterion match      Match error detection      Automatism geometric rectification
