Simulation is used to view or evaluate processes that are costly, difficult to perform or time consuming, or simply for educational and display purposes. In photogrammetry, airborne line scanner imagery differs from normal perspective photography in geometric properties. This work introduces the development of a program used for airborne line scanner image simulation. Two products have been discussed, raster image data and ground coverage.

Keywords: Line scanner, pushbroom, simulation, photogrammetry.
