Abstract:

A discussion is presented with the objective first of reviewing the concept of calibration as it pertains to the aerial photographic system. With this as a guide and with the further conditions that calibration procedures should require a minimum modification to the total photographic system yet be a procedure of high reliability, several calibration procedures are suggested. The method of mixed ranges is discussed. Theoretical discussions are also presented concerning mathematical modeling of frame, strip, and panoramic cameras. A procedure for testing the long and short term stability of a photographic system based on a generalized R-factor test is suggested. Recommendations are made concerning the establishment of a demonstration project using the method of mixed ranges. Author
