  1. [photogrammetry] A computational technique that uses ground reference points with known coordinates to locate the exterior orientation (camera station, coordinates, and attitudes) of an image. Uses three or more image rays, ensuring that for each ray, the image point, sensor's perspective center, and ground point are all collinear, providing parameters to correlate the image coordinates to ground coordinates with the use of a sensor model.
