Paper Abstract

Typical photogrammetric mapping systems could well be called 2-1/2-dimensional since they collect data for presentation on two dimensional maps by treating elevation as an attribute. However, in close-range photogrammetric applications, there is often the need to collect and utilize truly three dimensional data. Because of this, a new system, FoTo-G has been developed for three dimensional photogrammetric mapping applications. It is a production oriented software system designed to work with the highly unconventional photogrammetric image configurations which- result when photographing 3D objects. This paper describes several innovative and novel concepts which have been utilized to overcome traditional limitations and avoid common pitfalls.
