1989Mitchell HL, Chadwick RG, McCabe JF, 'Measurement at very close range using microscope photogrammetry', Australian Surveyor, 34 463-471 (1989)

This paper describes the use of photogrammetry for the measurement of objects only a few millimeters in size by using a 35 mm camera in conjunction with a stereoscopic microscope. It is intended not only to point out the attractiveness of the camera-microscope combination in very close-range measurements, but also to illustrate the successful development of a simple observing and computing routine despite the initial lack of any data about the camera-microscope system. The approach, which utilises a stereocomparator and a few elementary equations, demonstrates the advantage gained in close-range photogrammetry by the calibration of a number of parameters. The technique was successful in measuring depths on objects to precisions of 0.01 mm.

1988Mitchell HL, 'G. P. S. HEIGHTING IN AUSTRALIA: AN INTRODUCTION.', Australian Surveyor, 34 5-10 (1988)

Problems which can be encountered when using the Global Positioning System to determine differences in height are outlined, with emphasis on relevant characteristics of the Australian surveying environment. Approaches which can be used, if needed, to cope with the difficulties of GPS heighting are mentioned, along with moves to further examine the situation in Australia. Warnings given on this subject in other publications are repeated in this paper which focuses on the problem to provide an introduction to subsequent, more detailed papers. For the surveying and mapping community, applications should be found in the determination of coordinate differences especially when conventional methods, using EDM and theodolites, are restricted by a lack of intervisibility. Included in the list of possible uses is the determination of differences in height.

1987Fryer JG, Mitchell HL, 'Radial distortion and close-range stereophotogrammetry', Australian Journal of Geodesy, Photogrammetry & Surveying, 46-47 123-138 (1987)

The effect of radial lens distortion on close-range stereophotogrammetry is discussed. An overview is presented with a mathematical derivation, followed by a detailed analysis showing the amounts of x-parallax across a stereomodel which are introduced by the distortion and which remain uncompensated during a relative orientation. The discussion concentrates on the use of small non-metric cameras and the results are analysed to indicate the magnitude of errors which can be introduced to stereoscopic photogrammetry from this source. -Authors

1986Mitchell HL, 'CAN THE CONSULTING SURVEYOR MAKE USE OF PHOTOGRAMMETRY?', Australian Surveyor, 33 199-213 (1986)

Although world-wide research into close-range photogrammetry is quite extensive, there is little evidence of the commercial use of photogrammetry in Australia, other than for topographic mapping. A consideration of the possible role of photogrammetry in the consulting surveyor's practice in the foreseeable future is given in this paper. Recent developments in non-topographic photogrammetry, the structure of the Australian surveying industry and the existence of research in Australia is recognized in the discussion.
