AEROTRIANGULATION CONTROL OF LARGE SCALE PHOTOGRAPHY FROM SMALL SCALE PHOTOGRAPHY

Tests were made using the Virginia Dept. of Highways and Transportation normal operating procedures to determine if photogrammetrically bridged horizontal control established from high altitude photography would be improved by a simultaneous adjustment with the lower altitude photography which would be used for the compilation. Tests were made to evaluate the metric qualities of two cameras when used in Analytical Aerial Triangulation and to determine if there was any appreciable difference in the metric qualities of black and white and color photography. It was determined that a simultaneous adjustment will usually improve the quality of the bridged control, that there was a difference in the metric qualities of the two cameras tested and no appreciable difference in the metric qualities of black and white and color film. /FHWA/
