Abstract : Under the influence of ideas from control and communication theory, new trends have developed in the design of photogrammetric data-processing systems. In this paper a number of concepts applied to the design of such systems are discussed, with emphasis on the digital man-machine systems and system components. The main characteristics of contemporary photogrammetric systems are outlined in regard to both their hardward and software, including some remarks on automation and orthophoto-techniques. The general descriptions are supported by examples from two systems: one predominantly digital and the other predominantly analog. These examples concern the instrumental developments in the Photogrammetric Research Laboratories of the National Research Council of Canada. (Author)
