Photogrammetry

- a technique designed to overcome the problems of displacement caused by camera tilt, variations on the surface of the subject being photographed etc, in which stereo photography is used (stereo plotted) to provide a three dimensional image of the subject. In basic terms, it can be likened to eyesight, two eyes - one image.
