what about photogrametry ?

what about photogrametry ?

Hi, we are doing a research about photogrametry
       can you help us?
       what about:
    1- The scientific definition of photogrametry?
    2-  The types of projection?
    3-  Types of Ariel photos and Cameras ?
    4-  Relife displacement and its laws?
           And we will be thankful to you if you told us more and more about Photogrametry

RE: what about photogrametry ?


We are a company specialising in low level aerial photography from the ground! The camera is attached to the top of a telescopic mast which in turn is mounted on a 4x4 on/off road vehicle. The mast can operate to a maximum height of 70-feet and is amongst the highest in the World.

The mast can reach any location accessible by a 4x4 vehicle thus enabling us to photograph buildings not always accessible by either plane or helicopter. We provide the option for the client to view the exposure on-site using a video downlink to a TV monitor in the vehicle before the photograph is taken.

We use a wide range of 35mm still cameras which, via sophistucated remote controls, ensure superb oblique photography including close-up, zoom and wide angle photographs.

We have just been advised by an architect that our system is suitable for photogrametry on buildings (i.e churches, architectural features, stonework, etc.) but we have little knowledge of this subject. Can anyone give us any advice or recommend someone with whom we can discuss this matter further.

For further information on our system, please visit our website at www.aerialcloseup.com or e-mail us at jb@aerialcloseup.com.

One of the smartest people in this area is a senior technologist with Trimble Navigation... Mr. Kurt Maynard  kurt_maynard@trimble.com

Perhaps he can help you?


RE: what about photogrametry ?

The system can indeed be used in photogrammetry. This is a vast subject and possibly best handled by a person knowledgable in this area. There are a few packages etc available which will allow you to convert your photographs into a 3-D cad etc. Try www.Rolleimetric.de or contact your local photogrammetric association or a nearby university offering surveying courses. I'm sure they will be able to put you in touch with the best people to help you.

Letme know if you want more information and if so which country you are operating in.
