Adapting Three-Dimensional Animation Software for Photo grammetry Calculations 930904

A new method for computer-based photogrammetry in accident reconstruction is presented. CAD software is used to produce three-dimensional models of the site, vehicles, and other objects important in the incident. Objects of known configuration are incorporated into the scene model, and a perspective view is created that corresponds to the photograph. Then the objects of unknown position are added, and these are translated and rotated until they match the photograph. The result is a three-dimensional computer model of the site geometry, from which positional information may be extracted by examining the top, front, and side orthographic views.
