Abstract. In order to expand the field of view to obtain more data and information when doing research on remote sensing image, workers always need to mosaicking images together. However, the image after mosaic always has the large color differences and produces the gap line. This paper based on the graduation algorithm of tarigonometric function proposed a new algorithm of Two Quarter-rounds Curves (TQC). The paper uses the Gaussian filter to solve the program about the image color noise and the gap line. The paper used one of Greenland compiled data acquired in 1963 from Declassified Intelligence Photography Project (DISP) by ARGON KH-5 satellite, and used the photography of North Gulf, China, by Landsat satellite to experiment. The experimental results show that the proposed method has improved the accuracy of the results in two parts: on the one hand, for the large color differences remote sensing image will become more balanced. On the other hands, the remote sensing image will achieve more smooth transition.
