- Satellite imagery at level 2 is geometric distortion. Resolving this problem by human may cause errors and very time consuming. Ground control point (GCP) is a valuable resource for vertex matching and to correct the geometric distortion. This paper presented a database to store the ground control points with related imagery level 3 which created from ENVI program and these GCPs were referencing coordinate from Google Map. Furthermore, these GCPs are used in image matching with Satellite image. The various algorithms and band spectral of an image are explored in this paper. The results shown that a red band spectral and Phase Correlation is out performs.
