Rectified photography

- a cheaper but less accurate process than photogrammetry, where photos are taken of a facade to produce an accurate image. Only works properly when the facade is flat, and the camera is held exactly parallel to it. This is seldom achievable, and usually the process involves fitting a number of photos into an outline of the subject.
