ANALYTICAL STEREOPLOTTER DEVELOPMENT

ABOUT A DECADE AGO, MR. U. HELAVA BEGAN ORGANIZING IN HIS MIND THE ANALYTICAL STEREOPLOTTER CONCEPT. IN 1957 MR. HELAVA INTRODUCED THIS CONCEPT AT THE INTERNATIONAL PHOTOGRAMMETRIC CONFERENCE ON ANALYTICAL AEROTRIANGULATION AT THE NATIONAL RESEARCH COUNCIL AT OTTAWA, CANADA, IN A PAPER ENTITLED "NEW PRINCIPLE FOR PHOTOGRAMMETRIC PLOTTERS." SINCE THAT FIRST INTRODUCTION BY MR. HELAVA MANY TECHNOLOGICAL ADVANCES HAVE BEEN TAKEN IN PHOTOGRAMMETRY AND OTHER ALLIED SCIENCES, ESPECIALLY THOSE REQUIRED TO IMPLEMENT AN ANALYTICAL PLOTTER. IT IS THE PURPOSE OF THIS PAPER TO ELABORATE ON THE UNIQUE CHARACTERISTICS OF THE ANALYTICAL STEREOPLOTTER AND TO REVIEW ITS DEVELOPMENT FROM ITS ORIGINAL CONCEPT TO THE PRESENT AS-11B SYSTEM. FROM THIS REVIEW IT IS HOPED THAT AN UNDERSTANDING OF THE BASIC PRINCIPLES EMPLOYED IN THE ANALYTICAL STEREOPLOTTER MAY BE APPRECIATED, AND THE INFLUENCE OF THESE PRINCIPLES ON THE CURRENT TRENDS IN PHOTOGRAMMETRIC INSTRUMENTATION MAY BE REALIZED. WITH THIS KNOWLEDGE ONE CAN THEN BEGIN TO POSTULATE THE FUTURE OF THE SCIENCE OF PHOTOGRAMMETRY AND ITS POTENTIAL INFLUENCE ON OTHER TECHNOLOGIES. INCLUDED IN THIS PAPER IS A COMPLETE BIBLIOGRAPHY OF PUBLISHED AND UNPUBLISHED PAPERS, WHOSE TECHNICAL CONTENT IS RELATED TO THE ANALYTICAL STEREOPLOTTER. /PE/
