Abstract:

The results are given of an evaluation study of pertinent and significant information relative to errors, systematic and random, their source, effect, and treatment for the general problem of block analytical photogrammetric aerial triangulation. The particular error sources reviewed are lens distortion, camera parameters, resolution, atmospheric refraction, and film distortion. A discussion of error sources and their treatment, as applicable to the analytical photogrammetric problem, is included. The facility for weighting in the IBM 704 General Block Triangulation and Adjustment Program as supplied by the Government is described. The nature of the weighting routines to be added are described. The converted IBM 709 program is discussed. The salient characteristics, particularly as they differ from the 704 program, and the results of test runs are presented. Recommendations as to the directions of future activity in each of the above areas is given. Author
