In this paper we present a method with closed analytic formula of stitching aligned images.

It is obtained by choosing a statistically optimal global color change of one part of image.  This approach, due to its numerical efficiency, is especially well-suited for merging big amount of satellite images into a single map.

Moreover, we present solution of a general problem, how to find an optimal shift by v of data Y with respect to v from V, so that the dataset  X, Y+v is maximally statistically consistent. We show that the solution is given in a closed analytic form.
