Abstract:

Recent ACIC activities in the field of analytic photogrammetry have developed a requirement among technicians for knowledge of the mathematical essentials of analytic aerotriangulation. There are six chapters in this manual. The first chapter gives a geometric definition of the general aerotriangulation problem and reviews some fundamental propositions from solid geometry which are necessary for further study. Subsequent chapters deal with the point in space, the line in space, the plane in space, and systems of coordinates with matrix notation for transforming coordinates from one reference system to another system. The transformation from a space coordinate system to a geodetic coordinate system based on a spheroidal earth is a specific consideration. The last chapter deals with practical applications.
