Short description: During the course students increases knowledge and practical skills about the digital photogrammetric methods of measuring of images. Student is able to elaborate a block of images in an ImageStation Digital Photogrammetric WorkStation (knows how to carry out aerotriangulation, to obtain data for digital terrain model and generate the digital orthophotomap). After passing the course, the students are be able to use of digital methods of preparation of aerial photographs.
Full description: Photogrammetric scanners. Photogrammetric digital camera. Digital Photogrammetric WorkStations. The main directions of the automation of photogrammetric process . Generation of DTM from photographs (photogrammetry measurement techniques: manually, semi-automatic, automatic methods , the accuracy of the DTM). Airborne laser scanning as applied to building of DTM. Digital orthophotograpic processing - orthophotomap. Creating epipolar images. Image matching techniques: Area Base Matching, Feature Base Matching.
