Resumo

The increased resolution and reduced cost of commercially-available digital cameras have led to their use in close range and low-altitude airborne photogrammetric operations. In addition, the widespread adoption of Mobile Mapping and Unmanned Aerial Vehicle systems in various applications increased the demand for 3D reconstruction using Medium-Format Digital Cameras (MFDCs). The interest of professionals who might lack photogrammetric expertise mandates the development of automated procedures, especially camera calibration, for the manipulation of digital imaging systems. This paper deals with an investigation of the type of signalized targets that can be economically prepared while lending themselves to reliable detection and precise localization in the captured imagery. More specifically, checkerboard and circular targets are evaluated. Efficient techniques are introduced for their automated detection and localization as well as semi-automated identification. The impact of the proposed approaches on the quality of derived IOPs is quantified using similarity measures, which evaluate the degree of similarity of the reconstructed bundles from these IOPs. The experimental results show that automated localization of checkerboard and circular targets yield consistent IOPs. However, the detection and localization of checkerboard targets are easier and more robust to the quality of the involved imagery. Therefore, checkerboard targets are recommended as the target of choice for digital camera calibration.
