Assessing target centring algorithms for use in near-real-time-photogrammetry

Rubinstein, Michael January 1990 (has links)
Bibliography: leaves 140-146. / Target Centring Algorithms were investigated for use in the Near-Real-Time-Photogrammetry NRTP system: PHOENICS. PHOENICS, a Photogrammetric Engineering and Industrial digital Camera System, has been developed over the past three years in the Surveying Department of UCT to provide a semi-automatic system to determine three dimensional co-ordinates of surfaces and objects using a photogrammetric method. Targets are attached to an object in order to facilitate measurement of the shape, size and orientation of the object. The centre of the target uniquely defines the target co-ordinate. Target centres (from images of the same object) are used in photogrammetric models to locate the three dimensional (3-D) coordinates of the target. The accuracy of the target 3-D location is dependent on the accuracy of the target centring algorithm. A series of sub-algorithms were employed to arrive at a single target centring algorithm. Various combinations of these sub- algorithms were compared in order to obtain the optimal target centring algorithm. Three images were used to test various aspects of the target centring algorithms: their potential accuracy was tested on an image having symmetric synthetic targets their robustness was tested on an image having targets with artificial blemishes their performance in a real (noisy) environment was tested on an image with real targets on a control frame, captured by PHOENICS. When the target centring algorithms were run on the three images, target location with an accuracy of from 1/10 of a pixel for real images, to 1/1000 of a pixel for ideal synthetic targets was obtained.

The comparison and evaluation of different mathematical models for deformation analysis

Goullee, Robert Jules January 1984 (has links)
Bibliography: pages 124-125. / In the analysis of deformations using geodetic techniques, the errors in point positions due to observation errors must be distinguished from movements due to actual deformation. A number of models are available, which offer solutions to this problem. In this study, four of such methods are described and compared: 1. Method using Invariant Functions. 2. Method using Direct Comparison of Co-ordinates. 3. Method using Direct Differences. 4. Method using Niemeier's Comparison of Co-ordinates. The introduction of "false" deformations, caused by errors in translation, rotation and scale, is a very real problem which may be eliminated by processes such as the use of invariant functions (distances and angles) and the sound construction of constraint points. Niemeier's solution to this problem is the use of a free network adjustment which forces the new network into a best fit of the provisional co-ordinates, which generally would be the final co-ordinates of a previous epoch. Although the model advocated for the first three methods above is the minimum constraint adjustment, the free network adjustment may also be used. Similarly, the minimum constraints technique may be employed for Niemeier's method, subject to some necessary modifications. The four methods have thus been compared using both adjustment techniques also. The four methods using both adjustment techniques as well as some variations of methods 1. and 2. above are evaluated using a series of nine simulated test epochs, one reference and eight other, to which known deformations were applied. From the results obtained from the various epochs, the methods are examined for reliability, accuracy and suitability.

The implementation of the International Hydrographic Organisation's Worldwide Electronic Navigational Chart Data Base for Electronic Chart Display and Information Systems : the implications to sub-Saharan Africa

Osei, Samuel 24 March 2017 (has links)
This report gives suggestions to sub-Saharan Africa regarding the implementation of the International Hydrographic Organisation's (IHO) Worldwide Electronic Navigational Chart Data Base (WEND) for Electronic Chart Display and Information _systems (ECDIS). The IHO, recognising the need to supply up-to-date navigational information to mariners at sea, proposes the establishment of a worldwide network of navigational information. This proposal is aimed at addressing the information needs of international shipping. However, it does not restrict any hydrographic office from developing its own data base for national shipping. ECDIS is one new technology that will improve safety at sea. It integrates the Electronic Navigational Chart (ENC) and other navigational information. Unlike the paper chart, ECDIS will select and display information that is needed at any chosen moment thereby removing clutter from the display. The mariner will only see the information that is relevant for his immediate decision-making. ECDIS is versatile, complex and a potentially important aid to navigation decision-making. It enables mariners to navigate under conditions of poor visibility and through narrow and poorly-marked channels. It has the power to process data from a variety of sources and to detect and graphically show relationships between the data. Since history requires us to look at the past and the present to be able to project into the future, the report begins by giving the background to electronic charts. The report examines the traditional paper chart and the present method of updating the chart. It looks at the information contained in the Notices to Mariners, Radio Navigational Warnings and Global Maritime Distress and Safety Systems. The responsibilities and obligations of the various professional disciplines involved in updating the paper chart are also discussed. The limitations of the paper chart are commented upon and the need for a new technology is emphasized. The procedure for updating the electronic chart is also discussed. The terms "paper chart" and "traditional paper chart" are used interchangeably and mean the same thing in this report. The second chapter examines the requirements of ECDIS. It discusses the user requirements and the minimum system configuration. Operational and performance requirements are also examined. Chapter Three discusses the Worldwide Electronic Navigational Chart Data Base (WEND). It gives a brief background to WEND and discusses the conceptual model of the organisation of WEND on regional bases. It examines a paper presented by Australia in relation to a single state WEND proposed by Norway. Since the whole process of networking the navigational information depends on technology, an in-depth treatment of the subject is carried out in Chapter Four. Issues discussed include networking and distributed system, standards and protocols in telecommunications. The design consideration for the infrastructure for a Regional Electronic Navigational Chart Coordinating Centre (RECC) is dealt with in Chapter Five. Financial and institutional issues are discussed. Technical and non-technical security measure are commented upon. Chapter Six deals with the infrastructure design for a RECC. It examines the infrastructure components, system operation and maintenance and manpower. Strategies for implementing RECC in the sub-Saharan Africa are discussed in Chapter Seven. Network development, data and system security measures are commented upon. Chapter Eight looks at the legal implications of ECDIS and WEND. It examines the elements of the legal regime and speculates on the possible changes that could be brought about as a result of the changing technology. Chapter Nine concludes the report with recommendations on a regional WEND centre.
