Abstract : The photogrammetric techniques and the computer programs used in reducing time-lapse stereo photos of cumulus cloud development to three dimensional position information of discrete cloud points are described. The computer programs which reconstruct the tip, tilt and swing of the cameras, convert unscaled photo coordinate and parallax measurements to scaled values, and place these values in the proper coordinate system are described.
