This report contains a documented computer program for the calibration of comparators used for analytical photogrammetry. This computerized procedure is based on the measurement of 25 grid points whose coordinates are accurately known. The scale errors of the instrument x- and y-axes, as well as the lack of orthogonality are determined. The method of least squares and matrix inversion are employed to solve the unknown parameters. Statistical information such as the standard deviation of unit weight and confidence limits of the solved parameters are computed. A sample problem is included in the report. (FHWA)
