Abstract : The report describes the development and testing of a comprehensive computer program for the simultaneous aerotriangulation of a large block of photographs. The program consists of five principal parts: (1) Comparator observations preprocessor; (2) Photo coordinate correction routine; (3) Aerotriangulation and pass point intersection; (4) Analysis of results; and (5) Error propagation. Part 1 is a separate program to reduce monocomparator or stereo-comparator observations to a format acceptable for computation. Parts 2, 3, 4, and 5 are combined into one efficient program which permits a wide variety of options in the handling of the data. Sufficient tests have been run to demonstrate that the formulation is valid and not restricted by operation at any latitude or longitude on the earth. (Author)
