Digital Photogrammetry


Digital Photogrammetry

Photogrammetry, the use of photography for surveying, primarily facilitates the

production of maps and geographic databases from aerial photographs. Along with
remote sensing, it represents the principal means of generating data for geographic
information systems.
Photogrammetry has undergone a remarkable evolution in recent years with its
transformation into ‘digital photogrammetry’. First, the distinctions between
photogrammetry, remote sensing, geodesy and GIS are fast disappearing, as data
can now be carried digitally from the plane to the GIS end-user. And second, the
benefits of digital photogrammetric workstations have increased dramatically. The
comprehensive use of digital tools, and the automation of the processes, have significantly
cut costs and reduced processing time. The first digital aerial cameras have
become available, and the introduction of more and more new digital tools allows
the work of operators to be simplified, without the same need for stereoscopic
skills. Engineers and technicians in other fields are now able to carry out photogrammetric
work without reliance on specialist photogrammetrists.

This book shows non-experts what digital photogrammetry is and what the software
does, and provides them with sufficient expertise to use it. It also gives
specialists an overview of these totally digital processes from A to Z. It serves as
a textbook for graduate students, young engineers and university lecturers to
complement a modern lecture course on photogrammetry.
Michel Kasser and Yves Egels have synthesized the contributions of 21 topranking
specialists in digital photogrammetry, lecturers, researchers, and production

engineers, and produced a very up-to-date text and guide
