Abstract:

Under the influence of ideas from control and communication theory, new trends have developed in the design of photogrammetric data-processing systems. In this paper a number of concepts applied to the design of such systems are discussed, with emphasis on the digital man-machine systems and system components. The main characteristics of contemporary photogrammetric systems are outlined in regard to both their hardward and software, including some remarks on automation and orthophoto-techniques. The general descriptions are supported by examples from two systems one predominantly digital and the other predominantly analog. These examples concern the instrumental developments in the Photogrammetric Research Laboratories of the National Research Council of Canada. Author
