Photogrammetry is a practical definition of the geometrical properties of an object based on photographic image. The origins of photogrammetry are associated with contemporary photography and dates back to the mid-nineteenth century. In the simplest case, the distance between any two points within the plane parallel to the plane of the photographic image can be determined on the basis of their distance on the photographic image, if it is known for its scale. An extension of this technique is stereofotogrametria, which allows to determine the three-dimensional coordinates of points, determined on the basis of two or more photographic images obtained from different positions. It is these techniques have given rise to modern technological solutions, which are three-dimensional scanners »and optical coordinate measuring machines.” Using the latest digital image processing techniques in conjunction with the achievements of photogrammetry possible to create solutions to increase the already high accuracy of optical coordinate measuring systems. Such a solution is MaxSHOT 3D.
