While automatic image registration algorithms are usually being evaluated with regards to their accuracy, it is often useful to relate this accuracy to the "initial conditions", i.e., the distance between the initial navigation geolocation and the correct result. This paper describes a modular framework that was built to describe registration algorithms, and utilize this framework to attempt to classify different registration components and algorithms in terms of their responses to the initial conditions. Performances would be evaluated on synthetic data, multitemporal and multisensor data. All results of the study would be presented at the conference and would be useful for two different purposes: (1) provide automatic quality assessment of the geolocation of remote sensing data by performing interalgorithm consistency studies; and (2) be the foundations for the design of future on-board applications including planetary exploration.
