Paper Abstract

With the availability of digital cameras, it is possible to completely close the digital chain from image recording to plotting. The key decision regarding the camera design in this case is whether a CCD sensor should be used on a line or a matrix basis. In view of the high geometric accuracy requirements in photogrammetry, Z/I-Imaging focused its development on a digital camera based on a matrix sensor. An essential aspect of this decision was not only the aerial camera system, but the entire photgrammetric process to the finished photo or mapping product was also taken into account. The approach chosen will also maintain the usual central perspective for the new digital images. In addition to this Z/I Imaging will make use of the knowledge gathered during the development of the Digital Camera System, to continue its success in the field of reconnaissance.
