Superview 1 image orthorectification

Dear all,
Is it possible to orthorectify Superview 1 images using OTBCLI? This satellite sensor has the following spectral bands and acquired images come with RPC file.

Spectral bands:

  • PAN: 0.45-0.89 µm
  • B1/blue: 0.45-0.52 µm
  • B2/green: 0.52-0.59 µm
  • B3/red: 0.63-0.69 µm
  • B4/NIR: 0.77-0.89 µm

GSD (nadir):

  • PAN: 0.5 m
  • MS: 2 m

It is not on the supported sensor list but will it be possible to tweak some parameters to make it work?

Many thanks.


Yes, it works. You can use OrthoRectification application as you would use it for another sensor.
I also made some tests on PanSharpening and it works fine as well.

Do you need more help to fix the parameters ?

Best regards,


Sorry @yannick, I didn’t see this message until today. Yes, I need some help to fix the parameters.

Many thanks.


You can simply use the application like this :
otbcli_OrthoRectification yourSuperviewImage.tif -io.out yourImage_ortho.tif

You shall also give some information about the map projection you want to obtain :
Ex : -map utm -zone yourZoneNumber
or alternatively, you can use epsg code

Finally, you should also set up the elevation parameters :

  • a DEM can be used (-elev.dem )
  • a geoid is also needed (-elev.geoid )
    ex : if you use SRTM tiles, you can use an EGM96 geoid file.

You can also have a look at our Cookbook, that gives a lot of explanations (

Hope that it can help you.

Many thanks. I will try it.
