In the case of sensor-independent georeferencing, accuracy of the used model is commonly assessed by misfits separately obtained from ground control points and independent check points. However, applying only this approach has some disadvantages. This paper proposes using the figure condition method to support the common approach. Applying the figure condition process, a more rigorous analysis of accuracy for the used models can be conducted, and one can decide whether the used model is proper or not. In this contribution, a case study is carried out using affine and extended affine models for high-resolution IKONOS Geo, OrbView-3 Basic, and QuickBird OrthoReady Standard images. The results obtained are subjected to the analysis of figure condition.
