Photogrammetry is the study of methods that derive geometric dimensions from photographic images. Based on images of objects, coordinates of two-dimensional images are transferred into spatial object coordinates. Linear measurements and angels between such spatial points can be derived, and areas as well as volumes can be determined. With the development of digital technologies, such as high-performance computer systems and digital cameras, photogrammetry evolved into an accessible and inexpensive tool. Therefore, it can easily be integrated into prevailing digital workflow of construction, surveys, documentation and the process of creating plans. The digital camera is a widely known and trusted instrument that has already an integral part in these applications. With the assistance of powerful software systems, commercial camera systems can be utilized in most areas of photogrammetry, rather than using expensive metric cameras. Along the advancement and multiple applications across industries, computer vision offers a variety of solutions for surveys, procedures and presentations of three-dimensional data, known as -reality capture-. As a result of this evolution, a large part of photogrammetric analysis is performed with powerful, user-friendly and highly automated software programs. The software provides data to the architect and project manager in form of established and standardized data formats, that enables further processing of familiar digital working environments, such as CAD or BIM applications. This thesis explains the methods and requirements of architectural photogrammetry, using current software programs and commercially available digital cameras. Additionally, it takes into account the lower costs of the required software and hardware systems compared to alternative technologies, such as laser scanning. This thesis provides the basic knowledge of the production of proper image mosaics, methods of mensurating the scale and orientation of digital models, and the sequence of operations of photogrammetric analysis. This study elucidates the efforts necessary to apply digital photogrammetry to areas of operation to the architect and civil engineer.
