Tips for effective use of digital close range photogrammetry and terrestrial laser scanning

One of the successful outputs from working group V6 was to develop and make freely available ‘best-practice’ guidelines for non-expert users of:

  • Close range digital photogrammetry;

  •  Terrestrial laser scanners.

One of the activities for V5 is to perhaps update this over the coming years to reflect the impact of more recent "Structure from Motion" (SfM) techniques. Until then, we provide access to the earlier version as 95% of the guidance is still of distinct relevance.
