Abstract

The paper deals with the possibilities and limitations of the image processing of digitalized terrestrial photographs from analogue metric cameras. By the end of the 20th century, analogue metric cameras such as Zeiss UMK were used for documentation purposes in the fields of industrial and investment construction, nature and landscape preservation, heritage preservation, etc. Currently, the collections of photographs are stored at specialized archives of many different institutions, such as libraries, museums, universities, etc. These sets of photographs provide a material background for a 3D digital reconstruction of a subject of interest at the time of taking the photographs. The digital image processing of old photographs may be more difficult due to unknown parameters of the used camera, such as the focal length, image coordinates of the fiducial marks and distortion parameters of the lens system, etc. In this case, it may be difficult to process these photographs in a photogrammetric software. The paper presents a methodology for the digital photogrammetric processing of analogue terrestrial photographs. The data processing is based on the parameters of the used metric cameras, which are described in their calibration reports. The image processing was tested in two commercial photogrammetric software tools that utilize the technology of Structure-from-Motion (SfM) or multiimage intersection photogrammetry to process image datasets.
