Digital Photogrammetry : A Practical Course: Includes 3-d Glasses (Hardcover) (Wilfried Linder)
about this item
The fourth edition is again an"all-in-one" combination of basic theory and practical exercises withsoftware and data available from the Springer server. Potential readers / usersare students of Photogrammetry, Geodesy, Geography and other sciences, but alsoall who are interested in this topic. No prior knowledge is necessary, exceptthe handling of standard PCs. Theory is presented true to the motto "aslittle as possible, but as much as necessary".The main part of the book contains several tutorials. In increasing complexity,accompanied by texts explaining further theory, the reader can proceed step bystep through the particular working parts. All intermediate as well as thefinal results are discussed with reference to accuracy and error handling, andincluded in the data sets to provide controls. Most of the standard work inDigital Photogrammetry is shown and trained, for example scanning, imageorientation, stereo plotting, aerial triangulation measurement (manual andautomatic), block adjustment, automatic creation of surface models via imagematching, creation of ortho images and mosaics, and others. Examples of bothaerial and close-range photogrammetry present the power of this kind ofmeasurement techniques. 3-D images can be viewed with the accompanying 3-Dglasses.
During the time since the last edition, thesoftware development went on, and therefore it was necessary to adopt the textto the actual program versions which were also tested to work properly under MSWindows 10. Few options which are obsolete nowadays were removed, some newoptions were added, the handling of the software was simplified in severalplaces, and so on. For the use of own images taken with a custom digitalcamera, a new chapter offers an easy way of lens calibration and explains howto get good results with a minimum of work.
The software is not limited to the example data included but may be used forpersonal projects. Part of the book comprises a complete description of thesoftware.
