Course objectives
Basic principles of photogrammetry are given with the stress on digital photogrammetry. Methods of aerial imaging are mentioned. Mathematical principles of single-image methods and stereo phtogrammetry are mentioned. Individual stages of digital photogrammetric products are outlined (data acquisition, DTM processing, orthophoto creation).
  • 1. Basic concepts, historical overview, methods of photogrammetry 2. Aerial imaging (airplanes, cameras, films, digital photography, GPS support) 3. Main kinds of photographs and their elements. 4. Optical and photographic basis, interpretation of photographs 5. Mathematical basis, projective geometry, coordinate systems, main kinds of distortions on geometry. 6. Single image methods, relief displacement. 7. Stereophotogrammetry, concept of paralax, derivation of height of object and terrain. 8. Principle of stereo plotting device, relative and absolute orientation 9. Digital photogrammetry, attributes of digital image 10. Image transformation, geometric correction, 11. Orthophoto and digital terrain model (DTM), generation, DEM and DTM. 12. Digital photogrammetry workstation, HW and SW tools. 13. Production of topographic maps in the CR using photogrammetry
