The photogrammetric methods can be applied only if the horizontal displacements of the ground are of the order of several centimeters, because the standard error of the points so determined cannot, at the present time, be smaller than two centimeters. The procedure to be adopted, which has already been applied with satisfactory results for the densification of geodetic nets, is the aerial analytical triangulation. The taking can be executed with wide-angle cameras (f = 15 cm), or normal-angle cameras (f = 30 cm) and format 23 x 23 cm. Since the average scale of photos must be chosen in relation with the desired accuracy and then is independent of the principal distance of the cameras, the number of photos is constant, whereas the flying height varies according to the focal length.
