A PLOTTING INSTRUMENT FOR CLOSE-RANGE PHOTOGRAMMETRY

A Biomedical Laboratory was established at the University of Washington with a grant from the National Science Foundation. During research conducted in this laboratory, there was a need for graphical plotting for facial studies and for amputees. To provide the most economical means for such mapping, a new plotter was designed and fabricated from available parts of a Balplex plotter. The instrument is an affine restitution plotter. The calibration process and the achievable relative accuracy are described. The instrument is capable of mapping, using close-range stereo-photographs with fixed orientation elements as well as variable orientation elements. Mirror photographs also can be accommodated. Thus a complete three-dimensional mapping of the subject can be accomplished. /Author/
