Abstract

The Large Format Camera is a high resolution wide-angle mapping camera. It will be carried into orbit as a payload in the Shuttle Orbiter vehicle's cargo bay.

A mapping camera must be calibrated to determine precise values for its elements of interior orientation. The Large Format Camera was calibrated by the stellar method of camera calibration.

Descriptions of the procedure used by the National Ocean Service to calibrate the Large Format Camera are included.
