7.1.2 Image Rotation

The image rotation is not, strictly speaking, a distortion correction, but rather is an image remapping performed to simplify the extraction of spectral data from the SI. The purpose of the rotation is to align the spectral order(s) horizontally along the geometrically rectified image.
