Abstract : A solution has been developed to permit a simultaneous adjustment of all conventional photogrammetric and geodetic observations. The geodetic measurements included in the solution are: Laplace azimuths, straight-line distances, geodetic azimuths, horizontal angles, elevation differences, latitudes, longitudes and elevations. The photogrammetric measurements include image coordinates, exterior orientation parameters and ground controls in rectangular coordinates. The solution is coded in FORTRAN IV computer language and has been tested with both fictitious and real data.
