Primary data acquisition is the front end of mapping, GIS and
remote sensing and involves: aviation, navigation, photography,
cameras (film and digital systems), GPS systems, surveying (ground
control), photogrammetry, computerized systems and above all -
keeping abreast of modern techniques. This book deals with
differential GPS systems, survey flight management systems (both
simple and sophisticated), film types, modern film survey cameras
such as LH RC-30, Z/I RMK-TOP, digital cameras, infrared methods,
laser profilers, airborne laser mapping, satellite systems,
laboratory processing (chemical and digital), and camera platforms
(fixed wing and helicopter). A fresh approach to the subject
includes: soft-copy photogrammetry using desktop computerized
systems, film scanners and direct digital camera inputs.
Comparisons are made between old film-based technologies and the
new digital camera systems, including the Z/I modular digital
mapping camera and the LH "push-broom" ADS 40 camera. The book
should be useful to survey operators, aerial photographers,
photogrammetrists, surveyors, cartographers and mapping scientists,
GIS specialists and the new generation of "desk-top" mapmakers. It
is a standard reference for survey practitioners, civil engineers
and planner, flight crews, and academics and students in surveying,
photogrammetry, remote sensing, GIS and earth sciences.
