Abstract : Formulas are derived for the determination of geodetic azimuths between two nonintervisible distant points employing photogrammetric tech niques. Solutions are presented for the classi cal HIRAN azimuth reductions wherein only the azimuth component of observed directions are used. This is followed by a treatment of the 'space' solution utilizing observations on passive or active satellites. The classical method is developed on the Universal Transverse Mercator Grid (UTM); the latter directly on a spheroid. (Author)
