Abstract : The results are presented of a study directed towards the determination of analytic means of compensating for random and systematic errors associated with aerial triangulation. Analytic routines are presented for the compensation of systematic errors resulting from Atmospheric Refraction and Lens Distortion. The conditional equations as found in the General Block Triangulation and Adjustment Program were modified in such manner that they would become a part of the random error compensation system. The derivations and finalized forms of the modifications are treated. (Author)
