The GF-3 satellite launched in August 2016, is a C-band synthetic aperture radar(SAR) in China. With a resolution up to 1 m, GF-3 SAR imagery have made feasible the generation large-scale high resolution maps which need a high precision image registration technique. However, different remote sensing data usually have different geocoded formats. It causes misregistration when register SAR image with different projection formats. This paper discusses the method that convert the images from various projection coordinate to the unified geographic coordinate with a conversion accuracy of sub-pixel level.
