Abstract : The basic requirements for a capability to integrate photogrammetric and cartographic digital information are identified and discussed. The total Photo-Carto System and its component elements are described along with the data processing functions associated with each stage of data development. The Photo-Carto Interface computer programs are present in four basic functional blocks consisting of: The Digital Terrain Model Generator; the Digital Photographic Feature Generator; Single Camera Resector, and the Photographic Features Rectifier. A description of the experimental verification of the Photo-Carto Interface capabilities and a sample graphic are included in the main report. Appendix B is a Users' Manual for the operating programs. (Author)
