The fourth edition is again an "all-in-one" combination of basic theory and practical exercises with software and data available from the Springer server. Potential readers / users are students of Photogrammetry, Geodesy, Geography and other sciences, but also all who are interested in this topic. No prior knowledge is necessary, except the handling of standard PCs. Theory is presented true to the motto "as little as possible, but as much as necessary". The main part of the book contains several tutorials. In increasing complexity, accompanied by texts explaining further theory, the reader can proceed step by step through the particular working parts. All intermediate as well as the final results are discussed with reference to accuracy and error handling, and included in the data sets to provide controls. Most of the standard work in Digital Photogrammetry is shown and trained, for example scanning, image orientation, stereo plotting, aerial triangulation measurement (manual and automatic), block adjustment, automatic creation of surface models via image matching, creation of ortho images and mosaics, and others. Examples of both aerial and close-range photogrammetry present the power of this kind of measurement techniques. 3-D images can be viewed with the accompanying 3-D glasses. During the time since the last edition, the software development went on, and therefore it was necessary to adopt the text to the actual program versions which were also tested to work properly under MS Windows 10. Few options which are obsolete nowadays were removed, some new options were added, the handling of the software was simplified in several places, and so on. For the use of own images taken with a custom digital camera, a new chapter offers an easy way of lens calibration and explains how to get good results with a minimum of work. The software is not limited to the example data included but may be used for personal projects. Part of the book comprises a complete description of the software.

Geographic Information System (GIS) technology is used for collecting, storing, updating, processing, analyzing and displaying of spatial and other related data. A GIS system consists of organized and trained professionals, technical equipment, program support (software) and data. Although the beginnings of GIS development can be traced back to 30 years ago, the real boom was experienced in the last decade when it started to be massively used in remote research, military applications, surveying, geology, forestry, urban planning, local government, environment protection etc. We can certainly speak of a worldwide trend in the collection of spatial data and their transfer into a GIS system. The potential advantages of GIS over the conventional databases (or CAD) are numerous and can be divided into three main groups:- Data visualization,- Linking geographic and attribute (textual) features,- The opportunity for interdisciplinary decision-making.GIS technology provides a framework for integration of information in a way that it helps us understand and address some of the major problems encountered in today's civilization, such as rapid urbanization, overpopulation, environmental and climatic disturbances, and natural disasters. Geographic information systems also help us organize the data related to these issues and understand their spatial association, thus providing a basis for making timely and intelligent decisions.GIS is also used for the design and development of digital spatial databases, for conducting spatial analysis, for creating maps and for reports generation. GIS applications can be utilized by combining multiple levels of thematic data in one level in order to discover connections between them.This edition covers several topics related to geographic information systems, and it also describes applications of GIS in the hazard assessment and prevention, in the environmental area (nature preservation), as well as in society and urban domains.Section 1 focuses on technical aspects of GIS systems, describing development of Web geographic information systems with the NDT methodology; mapping spatial data on the Web using free and open-source tools; how to measure geographic information systems success; and using raster and vector integration for fuzzy vector information representation.Section 2 focuses on application of GIS in hazard prevention and assessment, describing flood forecasting GIS for water-flow visualization enhancement; integrated GIS, remote sensing and survey data for damage assessment of buildings; geographic information for emergency response by using an earthquake prototype; GIS data-driven method for early assessment of wetlands; and remote sensing data and GIS tools for accurate mapping of flooded area. Section 3 focuses on application of GIS in the environment and nature preservation, describing GIS applied to integrated coastal zone and ocean management; GIS applied to the hydro-geologic characterization using examples of Mancha oriental aquifer; effects of population density and land management on the intensity of urban heat islands; developing a web-based water distribution geospatial information system for Nairobi northern region; and contributions of the GIS in the study of the landscape morphogenesis of the area Goulmima-Errachidia. Section 4 focuses on application of GIS in society and urban systems, describing remote scheduling system for drip irrigation system using a geographic information system; Geo-Amazonas, which is a GIS for water resources management; accessibility analysis of healthcare delivery system within Enugu urban area using a geographic information system; and spatiotemporal analysis of urban sprawl and its contributions to climate and environment of Peshawar using GIS.

This guidance covers the practical application of photogrammetry in recording cultural heritage, with particular reference to structure from motion (SfM) techniques. Our audience for this document includes survey contractors, archaeological contractors, voluntary organisations and specialists. Photogrammetric image acquisition and processing, until recently requiring a considerable investment in hardware and software, are now possible at a fraction of their former cost. This has led to a huge increase in the use of photogrammetry in cultural heritage recording. The skills required to apply the techniques successfully and accurately are discussed, and background information on how various parts of the process work is provided so that better results can be achieved through better understanding. Photogrammetry is characterised by its versatility, and is applicable over a wide range of scales, from landscapes to small objects. The particular requirements needed at these different scales are outlined, and both imaging techniques and useful ancillary equipment are described. The different types of outputs are discussed, including their suitability for further interrogation using a range of established analytical techniques and the presentation options available. A range of case studies illustrates the application of photogrammetry across a variety of projects that broadly reflect the areas discussed in the text. This document is one of a number of Historic England technical advice documents on how to survey historic places.
