Point-based methods undertaken by experienced human operators are very effective for traditional photogrammetric activities, but they are not appropriate in the autonomous environment of digital photogrammetry. To develop more reliable and accurate techniques, higher level objects with linear features accommodating elements other than points are alternatively adopted for aerial triangulation. Even though recent advanced algorithms provide accurate and reliable linear feature extraction, the use of such features that can consist of complex curve forms is more difficult than extracting a discrete set of points. Control points that are the initial input data, and break points that are end points of segmented curves, are readily obtained. Employment of high level features increases the feasibility of using geometric information and provides access to appropriate analytical solutions for advanced computer technology.
