Photogrammetry from Archived Digital Imagery for Seal Monitoring

  journal={The Photogrammetric Record},
This paper discusses the use of near vertical aerial photographs archived onto Kodak Photo CD in the production of a digital elevation model of the Isle of May, Scotland. Control for the survey was obtained using differential GPS receivers and the photogrammetric processing was carried out using low cost PC hardware and software. The elevation model is being used in a GIS to enable the spatial analysis of the island's seal population. 

Aerial Photogrammetric Imagery and Satellite Systems and Images

Apart from the features of GPS, GLONASS, Galileo and LIDAR, which is a method of remote surveillance and examination of the Earth’s surface by scanning, there are some computer programs and digital atlases that use satellite images and topographic maps that are briefly presented.

Photogrammetric investigation into the suitability of desktop image measurement software for architectural recording

The rigorous testing of low cost desktop image measurement software that has recently become commercially available to the mass market indicates that all the packages are capable of returning measurement accuracies to rival analytical photogrammetric methods when examined under 'real-world' conditions.

Digital photogrammetry: An experience of processing aerial photograph of UTM acquired using digital camera

In GIS, aerial photograph can be used as a source of input to the system. The aerial photograph can be in the form of metric or non-metric imagery. In aerial photogrammetry, for most applications

Remote Estimation of Grey Seal Length, Width, and Body Mass from Aerial Photography

High-resolution images of two UK grey seal breeding colonies were derived from multi-temporal aerial photography and geo-referenced in a GIS using ground control points obtained in the field with

Expansion of a grey seal ( Halichoerus grypus ) breeding colony: changes in pupping site use at the Isle of May, Scotland

Comparison with other colonies suggests that the spatial scale of site fidelity is related to the scale of topographic variation within the breeding site, which acts to limit local animal density.

Dispersion and site fidelity of breeding male grey seals (Halichoevus grypus) on North Rona, Scotland

The daily locations of socially active male grey seals were recorded during three successive breeding seasons on North Rona (Outer Hebrides, Scotland). Areas of occupancy were defined for 38

Evidence for Mate Fidelity in the Gray Seal

Genetic analysis of pups born on the island of North Rona, Scotland, reveals large numbers of full siblings, although dominant males father disproportionately few of these.
