The “jitter_solve” program was recently introduced by NASA Ames Stereo Pipeline (ASP) software as a possible solution "to reduce the effect of unmeasured perturbations in the linescan sensor as it acquires the data". “Jitter_solve” program reminds the work of the “bundle_adjust” program, but it adjusts each individual camera position and orientation in the linescan model instead of the only single one when using the CSM camera model. We present our implementation of the DEM generation and provide it to the public as a basis for discussion.
The study area is the unnamed crater located within highlands of Tyrrhena Terra on Mars. The crater is assumed to be an open-basin paleolake as there are channels looking like inlet and outlet; the high-quality DEM is needed to study possible fluvial activity in this crater.
