Abstract:Along with Internet development, there were interactive applications which allow for remote sensing and photogrammetric analysis. An example of an application that can provide Earth images and make it possible to measure distances in these images is Google Earth. The authors, who have experience from 2001-2015 argue that it is possible and it is important to create more advanced photogrammetric network applications. In this there are solutions presented which can be effectively used in the education process at the level of engineering studies in the fields of geodesy, cartography and photogrammetry. The use of internet photogrammetry is especially valuable in situations where education is carried out in groups of students who participate in activities in forms of remote learning or when the student must carry out homework. Great importance is also associated with the economic aspect of the solution, because the end user (student) obtains access to the system through a standard Web browser, so without the necessity to install the dedicated software or have an individual license.
The presented applications use Web browsers and Java Virtual Machine (JVM) and they are used by users in the so-called web applications. In this paper, the authors cite the advantages and limitations of solutions based on internet photogrammetry. They also present the results of experiments which were the basis for their doctoral dissertations in 2003 and 2015.
Typical applications are available at http://stereo.uwm.edu.pl and at the website of the 4th Working Group / 5 ISPRS.
Keywords: Internet photogrammetry, web-photogrammetry, e-learning, remote education.
