A method to produce rectified Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR) datasets is proposed, using both the orbital model and identification of ground control points (GCPs), involving a single image transformation from the raw imagery. The ability of the orbital model to determine the geographical co-ordinates of pixels in a raw AVHRR image was tested, using a total of 1098 GCPs in 24 AVHRR images. Five of the 24 images were also rectified using the method proposed, using a newly identified set of GCPs. The differences between the geographical co-ordinates of the existing GCPs and those determined by the new method are calculated and discussed.
