restitution:  The determination of the true (map) position of objects or points; the image appears distorted or displaced on unprocessed aerial photographs.  Restitution corrects for displacement resulting from both tilt and relief displacement.  Restitution in classic photogrammetry is commonly achieved by analytical methods or through the use of stereoscopic plotting instruments.  The orthorectification processing step in TNTmips applies elevation information from an elevation raster object to an image to produce an orthoimage output raster object.
