Hello to all
; looking around found something...................................
XVIII. Photographic work.
The photographic works include:
photogranimetric and stereophotogrammetric recordings and their further elaboration or utilization.
This work is carried out by photographic and photogrammetric specialists.
They are primarily used for war surveying, then for land surveying tasks, and finally for work on war history and for object lessons. For this purpose, the formations of the war mappings are provided with photographer equipment. For combat purposes (especially for artillery), photographic or stereophotogrammetric panoramic photos (Rundbild) are used.
They are usually taken from observer stations or other viewpoints in order to always show the commanders the area viewed by the observer, to enable new observers to get their bearings more quickly and to facilitate the reporting service and the transmission of orders.
The following devices are used for panoramic photos:
Overview sets of 60, 70, 80 cm, then remote sets with 3 m and 4 m focal length, all with, angle measuring device and image marks. Single pictures with ordinary or remote devices (Fernkamera??) are produced of important objects or for purposes of war history as well as occasionally for land survey work for the purpose of describing the country, and finally for teaching purposes.
