Abstract:

The present invention relates in general to photogrammetry and in particular relates to a process, a product and an apparatus for extracting information from photographs. As used hereafter, an anaglyph is a picture combining two images of the same object, recorded from different points of view, one image in one color being superposed upon the second image in a complementary color, which when viewed through complementary color filter lens produces a stereoscopic or third dimensional effect. In accordance with the present invention, an absolutely oriented spatial model is prepared from a pair of serial photographs in a conventional manner. The projected images of the spatial model are then photographed and printed on a common sheet with one image printed in one color and superposed upon the second image which is printed in a complementary color to produce a photogrammetric anaglyph. Then by means of a novel device termed in anaglyphometer, the desired information is compiled from the anaglyph.
