Abstract

Equations for photogrammetry from an aircraft nose camera movie are based on angles from a fixed point on the horizon toward which the aircraft is flying. The positions and dimensions of an arc of clouds occurring on day 261 of GATE are presented as an example. The accuracy of such measurements is a few kilometers in the horizontal and about 500 m in the vertical.
