Help With ~ Photogrammetry

Introduction to Photogrammetry

Photogrammetry is the science of making measurements from photographs.

The input to photogrammetry is photographs, and the output is typically a map, a drawing, a measurement, or a 3D model of some real-world object or scene. []

Two general types of photogrammetry exist: aerial (with the camera in the air) and terrestrial (with the camera handheld or on a tripod). Terrestrial photogrammetry dealing with object distances up to approximately 200 meters is also termed close-range photogrammetry. Small-format aerial photogrammetry... takes place between these two types, combining the aerial vantage point with close object distances and high image detail. [Aber, J. S., Marzolff, I., & Ries, J. (2010). Small-format aerial photography: Principles, techniques and geoscience applications. Elsevier.]
