AN ORIENTATION AND CALIBRATION METHOD FOR NON-TOPOGRAPHIC APPLICATIONS

From the basic relations of a linear transformation an exact solution for the orientation and calibration of cameras is derived. This solution leads to a least-squares adjustment with linear fractional observation equations and non-linear additional constraints. The transformation parameters are computed iteratively using three-dimensional object space control. With these parameter the object space coordinates of all image points, contained in at least two photographs, can be determined in a second step. The efficiency of the method is demonstrated with data of some control surveys of wide spanning surface structures. /Author/
