Learn modern photogrammetric methods from three leaders in the field. Edward M. Mikhail, James S. Bethel, and J. Chris McGlone's INTRODUCTION TO MODERN PHTOGRAMMETRY provides a strong grounding in the mathematical basis of photogrammetry, covers modern sensors and digital technology, and introduces readers to related areas, such as remote sensing and digital image processing, which are incrreasingly important to current photogrammetric practice and research. Workded examples are provided throughout the text and problems are provided at the end of each chapter to give the reader an opportunity for practice.
Photogrammetric programs on CD-ROM
A CD-ROM packaged with this text contains example programs with source code. These programs enable you to perform a diverse set of photogrammetric operations, of progressive complexity, as described in the text.
