Abstract

This thesis is concerned with an investigation into the possibilities of implementing various aspects of a purely digital stereo-photogrammetric (DSP) system on the IBM 3090 150E mainframe multi-user computer. The main aspects discussed within the context of this thesis are:-i) Mathematical modelling of the process of formation of digital images in the space and frequency domains.ii) Experiments on improving the pictorial quality of digital aerial photos using Inverse and Wiener filters.iii) Devising and implementing an approach for the automatic sub-pixel measurement of cross-type fiducial marks for the inner orientation, using the Gradient operator and image modelling least squares (IML) approach.iv) Devising and implementing a method for the digital rectification of overlapping aerial photos and the formation of the stereo-model.v) Design and implementation of a digital stereo-photogrammetric system (DSP) and the generation of a DTM using visual measurement.vi) Investigating the feasibility of stereo-viewing of binary images and the possibility of performing measurements on such images.vii) Implementing a method for the automatic generation of a DTM using a one-dimensional image correlation along epipolar lines and experimentally optimizing the size of the correlation window.viii) Assessment of the accuracy of the DTM data generated both by the DSP and the automatic correlation method.ix) Vectorization of the rectification and correlation programs to achieve higher speed-up factors in the computational process.
