Analysis of Accuracy of the Generous Orthophotomap on the Basis of Digital Aerial Photos Collected for the Airport Dęblin

Open access


The article presents the technological process of generating an orthophotomap based on photos obtained from the aviation ceiling. To achieve the intended goal, it was necessary to design and measure a field photogrammetric matrix. A method of GNSS technique measurement was chosen for the measurement of the photopoints. The aim of the research was to generate an orthophotomap and to evaluate the impact of parameter selection on the orthophotomap accuracy. The obtained ortho-images were compared with the orthophotomap obtained from the resources of the Central Geodesic and Cartographic Documentation Center. Based on the obtained results, it was found that the change of parameters during the generation of intermediate products does not significantly affect the accuracy of the resulting orthophotomap.
