Abstract:

The Analytical Photogrammetric Positioning System APPS was developed to determine accurate target location data. APPS operators transfer target locations from mission images to a vertical data-base photograph in determining target coordinates. The speed and accuracy with which experienced interpreters of side-looking radar, infrared, and television images transferred annotated locations from such sensor images to a vertical data-base photograph were determined. Annotated locations used were A-Type those on or near a terrain feature identifiable on mission and data-base images and B-Type those 200 or more meters distant, on the ground, from such mutually identifiable features. Transfer techniques were of two kinds 1 direct transfer in which visual correlation of mission and data-base images was used 2 indirect transfer where the required point was transferred using a photogrammetric transformation method employing auxillary points that were mutually identifiable on mission and data-base images.
