AEROTRIANGULATION ERROR ANALYSIS AND GROUND CONTROL POINT ERROR DETECTION

A MAJOR PROBLEM FACED BY PERSONNEL RESPONSIBLE FOR MANIPULATING AEROTRIANGULATION DATA THROUGH TRANSFORMATION AND ADJUSTMENT PROGRAMS IN AN ELECTRONIC COMPUTER IS THAT OF ISOLATING AND DETECTING BLUNDERS AND OTHER ERRONEOUS DATA. THIS RESEARCH CREATED AN AUTOMATED DATA ANALYSIS AND REJECTION PROGRAM TO REDUCE THE TURN AROUND TIME FROM INITIAL ENTRY TO CERTIFICATION OF THE FINAL ADJUSTMENT. PARAMETERS FOR ESTABLISHING THE SMALLEST DETECTABLE ERRORS FOR REJECTION WERE DETERMINED BY ANALYSES OF ERROR SOURCES IN GROUND SURVEYS, AERIAL PHOTOGRAPHY, AND AEROTRIANGULATION THEORY AND OPERATIONS. /FHWA/
