Plane table application?

Posted by paulbiv on 8 October 2011 in English (English)

Does anyone have a plane table application for geo-coded digital photographs?

What I was thinking of (having used a plane table in the ancient past) is something that takes two GPS-coded photographs of the same (or overlapping) scene, and works out angles, distances and heights of visible objects from the baseline length and exif camera data.

Like stereoscopy but for mapping not entertainment.

Doesn't look like the plugins for editors do that sort of thing.

To me, getting building heights is difficult without this sort of thing.

It seems like the opposite of hugin panoramas.
