Abstract:

This report describes the development of a computer program that will perform a satellite-triangulation adjustment, using the direction numbers of the straight lines in space that connect the different camera stations. The program computes the approximate values of the coordinates of all camera stations. These coordinates are used to form the proper observation equations for a least squares adjustment, yielding the adjusted coordinates and their variance matrix. This report consists of two parts The general program description and a collection of descriptions of the subroutines used. It is concluded that the work has been performed according to the contract. It is concluded further that other recent work in this area may merit investigation. Author
