    Hi Tom, yes, that is the reason!  :D

    The "old" method is, as you say, only suitable for flat surfaces. For everything else, there will be a noticeable perspective in lines that are not parallel to the camera sensor. The result will look like it's been taken with a tilt-shift lens.

    I would argue that the "new" photogrammetry is at least as quick, possibly faster, since the "old method" requires a minimum of 5 theodolite measured points per image to be metrologically accurate, provided you have a nearly undistorted image. And then there are the inevitable color differences from one image to the next, which the "new" method takes care of automatically...

    V gd - now I have a name, and there's a developed workflow out there, for part of what I have in mind.
