Abstract

Monoplotting is a well-known photogrammetric technique for extracting 3D spatial information from single aerial imagery of terrain described by a digital elevation model. The method also offers potential for single-image analysis of high-resolution satellite imagery (HRSI). This paper investigates the prospects of single IKONOS and QuickBird images for 3D feature pointcollection and the generation of 3D building models. The implementation of monoplotting functions in the photogrammetric software package ‘Barista’ is described and an experimental determination of the accuracy of monoplotting from IKONOS and QuickBird imagery is reported. © 2005, Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
