The problem of the rigorous simultaneous adjustment of large photogrammetric blocks is reviewed and extensions to an earlier theory are developed. Various matrix iterative approaches to the solution of the very large systems of normal equations characteristic of sizeable photogrammetric nets are investigated. The Method of Block Successive Over Relaxation is found to yield a practical and most satisfactory solution to this problem. Results of an extensive series of numerical simulations are reported. The successful application of the approach to a 23-photo strip of actual photography provides final confirmation of the validity and effectiveness of the solution.
