Abstract : The general photogrammetric adjustment presented in this development is an application of the classical solution of the adjustment of indirect observations with condition equations by the method of least squares. The general solution will simultaneously solve the problems of orientation, space resection, and triangulation. Special case applications will solve independently for specific parameters, the others being assumed to be known. The most important consideration of the general photogrammetric adjustment is its rigorous propagation of given errors in the variables into the general covariance matrix of the adjusted parameters.
