that are often present in satellite imagery. It is designed to robustly handle the typical difficulties of
multi-sensoral/multi-temporal images. Clouds are automatically handled by the implemented outlier detection algorithms.
The user may provide user-defined masks to exclude certain image areas from tie point creation. The image overlap area
is automatically calculated.

Feature overview
----------------
* Local co-registration:
A dense grid of tie points is automatically computed, whereas tie points are subsequently validated using a
multistage workflow. Only those tie points not marked as false-positives are used to compute the parameters of an
affine transformation. Warping of the target image is done using an appropriate resampling technique
(cubic by default).
|
* Global co-registration:
Only a global X/Y translation is computed within a small subset of the input images (window position is adjustable).
This allows very fast co-registration but only corrects for translational (global) X/Y shifts.
The calculated subpixel-shifts are (by default) applied to the geocoding information of the output image.
No spatial resampling is done automatically as long as both input images have the same projection.
If you need the output image to be aligned to the reference image coordinate grid
(by using an appropriate resampling algorithm), use the '-align_grids' option.
Global co-registration - fast but only for static X/Y-shifts

The calculated subpixel-shifts are (by default) applied to the geocoding information of the output image.
No spatial resampling is done automatically as long as both input images have the same projection. However, AROSICS
also allows to align the output image to the reference image coordinate grid if needed.
Here is an example of a Landsat-8 / Sentinel-2 image pair before and after co-registration using AROSICS:

Local co-registration - for spatially variable shifts but a bit slower

Here is an example of the computed shift vectors after filtering false-positives
