Abstract. The sensor calibration is one of the basic elements for getting effective and efficient production workflows out of airborne photogrammetry. Digital images and their orientations (interior and exterior) are the key to get the resulting products into the workflow of a national mapping agency (NMCA). Not only the geometric calibration is required meanwhile the radiometric calibration as well is used, for example in raster-based classification processes. In the paper the requirements are shown and examples are presented. At least open aspects and the outstanding debts are given.
