AN ANALYSIS OF PANORAMIC PHOTOGRAMMETRY USING AN ANALOG COMPUTER MODEL FOR ERROR DETERMINATION,
ELECTRONIC ASSOCIATES INC PRINCETON N J PRINCETON COMPUTATION CENTER
The quantitative effects of steady state and dynamic errors in camera orientation and position on distances in a panoramic photograph are ana lyzed and calculated. Error curves plotted as continuous functions of scan angle are presented for many diverse conditions allowing the deter mination of photogrammetric error at all points of a panoramic photograph. The effect of IMC error is computed while the quantitative effects of earth curvature and refraction are summarized in a Universal Curve. The problem of determining the orientation of a camera from points appearing in a photograph is examined. Several analog and hybrid digital-analog schemes for solution of the orientation problem are suggested. Author
