The book treats of various aspects of aerial photogrammetry in three main parts. Part I introduces the exact analytical relationships between the coordinates of perspectively conjugate points of oblique and vertical aerial photographs, employing various auxiliary coordinate systems located in the plane of inclination of the photograph. The accuracy of working formulae is also investigated, and approximation formulae which satisfy preestablished requirements for accuracy and those used to determine or orientation elements and the elevations of ground points, depending upon the absolute values of the angles of inclination of aerial photos, terrain relief, etc. are given. Part II discusses the determination of relative orientation elements and the substantiation of their different systems. Part III gives formulae which combine corrections for x-parallax measurements with relative orientation elements, depending upon the accepted system of relative or exterior orientation and the chosen initial direction in which a pair of overlapping aerial photographs were oriented in the apparatus. Electronic computers are being used to some degree in the Soviet Union for photogrammetric computations.
