Abstract:

The report describes the development and results of testing a simultaneous analytical aerial triangulation and adjustment techniques programmed for a large scale, general purpose, electronic digital computer. The technique is an outgrowth of the intersection equations developed by Dr. Paul Herget and induces weight procedures prepared by Mr. D. Brown. The technique is unrestricted as to camera type, geographic location, number of photographs, or flight configuration. The computer program is coded in FAP for the IBM 704, 709, 7090 and 7094. The program will solve up to 28 photographs simultaneously. Engineering test configurations and test results using this program from February 1960 to April 1963 are reported. Author
