The authors give some general information on industrial photogrammetry and describe how it can be usefully applied in the shipyard. The article is mainly concerned with the dimensions, form, and position of hull sections in the light of studies carried out by the Institute fur Schiffbau, Rostock, in co-operation with the Wilhelm Pieck University and East German shipyards; industrial photogrammetry has been used in these yards on an experimental basis since 1970. The system used, including both hardware and software, was provided by the optical works at Jena; output is in the form of a data list, and scale drawings (e.g., 1:10) can also be provided by means of a numerically-controlled draughting machine. The accuracy of the measurements that have been made is discussed in detail. The authors conclude that the results obtained in shipyards in East Germany and elsewhere confirm the usefulness of industrial photogrammetry in shipbuilding. For some shipyard applications, it is at present the only method of measurement that can be used without excessive expenditure of time and undue interference with production (though the data processing may cause some delay). Nevertheless, the high cost of the equipment, personnel, and computer time involved necessitates careful consideration before deciding to use it. Order from BSRA as No. 49,805.
