We address the general practical problem of determining correspondences between maps and terrain images, and focus on a static low altitude airborne scenario. For this case we consider the approach of partially matching detected and expected curves in the image plane. Expected curves are generated from a map, using an estimate of the sensor pose in three dimensions, and matched with simulated detected curves in an image. We also outline a method for sensor pose refinement using point correspondences derived from curve matches as input to a relative orientation algorithm.
