Aerial Mapping: Methods and Applications, Second Edition by Dennis Morgan, Edgar Falkner

By Dennis Morgan, Edgar Falkner

Development at the starting place of the bestselling first version, Aerial Mapping: equipment and functions, moment variation offers you a pragmatic realizing of aerial images, distant sensing, and photogrammetric mapping. The content material is intentionally semi-technical and strategies are mentioned in a fashion simply obtainable to somebody despite their technical or medical historical past. This re-creation highlights the numerous adjustments in gear and strategies. High-speed pcs, scanners, and distant sensors have replaced the best way mapping is completed. the rules of photogrammetry, snapshot research, and distant sensing became dynamically intertwined. With the forged grounding in uncomplicated strategies that Aerial Mapping: tools and functions, moment variation offers you could practice your wisdom to the unique stipulations of every aerial mapping undertaking.

Example text

Data compilation is the collection of information pertaining to and describing features within a stereomodel, accomplished by interpretation of the object type whether it is topography, structures, utilities, natural features, or vegetation. Data compilation may also include the shape and position (horizontal and vertical) of a selected feature relative to other features in the stereopair. Topography is compiled as points of known elevation, which can be mathematically interpreted into contours (lines of equal elevation) by software applications.

6 Digital Camera Components* Digital camera systems are relatively similar to analog systems. These digital imagery systems can collect black and white, natural color, and color infrared imagery. The option of having natural color and color infrared imagery collected from a fixed winged or rotary winged aircraft can be very advantageous. Environmental assessment often requires imagery data collection at a specific and often narrow band of time. Digital imagery such as that shown in Color figures 1 and 2** allowed for the collection of both natural color and color infrared video of a site in Alaska.

These systems are commonly referred to as forward motion compensation (FMC) mounting systems. 3 Camera System An analog aerial camera system is a complex arrangement of interrelated, hightechnology, electromechanical accessories. Refer to Chapter 4 in Aerial Mapping Methods and Applications (Lewis Publishers, Boca Raton, FL, 1995) to view a schematic showing the essential components of a “state-of-the-art” precision aerial camera system. 4 Focal Length Imbedded within the rear lens elements is a point, measurable with optical calibration equipment, known as the rear nodal point.
