Automatic determination of mosaic line

The aerial photograph is used for various uses such as Google Maps and
a means test. Since aviation pictures are generated by mosaicing two
or more pictures, it is necessary to determine the boundary line (this
is called a mosaic line) between pictures. Since the pictures are
taken from a different point, pictures of the same point may differ
each other. For this reason, how to determine the mosaic lines which
make natural aerial photographs influences the quality of an aerial
photograph. Today the mosaic lines are determined manually. In this
research, the technique of determining automatically mosaic lines by
image processing is studied.
