A PHOTOGRAMMETRIC SYSTEM FOR MOTOR VEHICLE ACCIDENT INVESTIGATION
This study consisted of fabricating a twin camera stereometric unit mounted on a portable carrier with 36" spacing for the camera lenses. The unit was calibrated and its net accuracy capabilities were determined. A variety of applications were studied including; (a) mapping the site of the accident both "on scene" with evidence present, and "on site" after evidence was removed; (b) photographing a vehicle in an effort to determine the qualitative data (type of damage) and quantitative data (specific measurements) available for study at any time the photographs are to be reviewed; and (c) photographing a victim of an accident seeking qualitative and quantitative data. Major emphasis for the study centered areound utilization problems and potential contributions to multidisciplinary studies.
