Automated close-range photogrammetric network orientation and camera calibration has traditionally been associated with the use of coded targets in the object space to allow for an initial relative orientation (RO) and subsequent spatial resection of the images. However, over the last decade, advances coming mainly from the computer vision (CV) community have allowed for fully automated orientation via feature-based matching techniques. There are a number of advantages in such methodologies for various types of applications, as well as for cases where the use of artificial targets might be not possible or preferable, for example when attempting calibration from low-level aerial imagery, as w..
