The C-100 Planicomp analytical stereo-plotting system, consists of a basic opto-mechanical unit, a photogrammetric control panel, control unit, computer, computer terminal in the form of a teleprinter or video screen, peripheral equipment, and plotting table. In conjunction with some 70 existing user programs, it offers a multitude of advantages over analog equipment: rapid and objective adjusting orientation with output of residual errors, single and incremental recording with great flexibility regarding incements, measurement setup and output format, aerial triangulation with direct data checking during measurement and subsequent overall adjustment in the instrument without data transfer, computation of secondary geometric magnitudes such as center of gravity, distance, length, angle, area, and volume; and computer-supported graphical plotting (on-line mode) in the form of straight-line plotting, supplementary plotting, plotting of symbols, point numbers, spot heights, and lettering, as well as fully automatic grid plotting. At a cost comparable to that of larger analog systems, a "photogrammetric plotting center" has thus become available, which makes allowance for future developments going well beyond its present capabilities. /Author/
