RECENT ANALYTICAL STEREOPLOTTER DEVELOPMENTS

VARIOUS RECENT DEVELOPMENTS IN ANALYTICAL STEREOPLOTTERS HAVE BEEN INCORPORATED IN THE BENDIX-OMI AS-11B-1 AUTOMATIC ANALYTICAL STEREOPLOTTER. THE AS-11B-1 USES A NEW, POWERFUL, MICROCIRCUIT COMPUTER WHICH ENABLES IMPROVED ORIENTATION PROCEDURES, FASTER AUTOMATIC OPERATION, AND INCREASED VERSATILITY. IN OTHER ANALYTICAL STEREOPLOTTER DEVELOPMENTS, IMPROVEMENTS HAVE BEEN MADE IN AUTOMATION. THESE IMPROVEMENTS ARE IN THE ELECTRONIC SCANNING AND CORRELATION EQUIPMENT, AND IN THE COMPUTER PROGRAMS. FOR EXPERIMENTAL WORK, ELECTRONIC CIRCUITRY FOR MEASUREMENT OF IMAGE CHARACTERISTICS HAS BEEN ADDED TO AN AS-11B AUTOMATIC ANALYTICAL STEREOPLOTTER. RELATED TO THE ANALYTICAL STEREOPLOTTER WORK IS THE DEVELOPMENT OF A COMPUTER- CONTROLLED CORRECTION SYSTEM FOR AN ANALOG STEREOPLOTTER, AND COMMENCEMENT OF DEVELOPMENT OF A COMPUTER-CONTROLLED OFF-LINE OPTICAL ORTHOPRINTER. APPARENT IN ALL OF THESE DEVELOPMENTS IS THE TREND TOWARDS INCREASED VERSATILITY, SIMPLIFICATION OF MODEL ORIENTATIONS, FASTER AUTOMATIC PLOTTING WITH BETTER QUALITY, AND THE APPLICATION OF ANALYTICAL STEREOPLOTTER TECHNIQUES TO OTHER PHOTOGRAMMETRIC INSTRUMENTS.
