Abstract

Automated close-range photogrammetric network orientation 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. Over the past decade, automated orientation via feature-based matching (FBM) techniques has attracted renewed research attention in both the photogrammetry and computer vision (CV) communities. This is largely due to advances made towards the goal of automated relative orientation of multi-image networks covering untargetted (markerless) objects. There are now a number of CV-based algorithms, with accompanying open-source software, that can achieve multi-i..
