JULY 15--GDV Systems GmbH has agreed to market, distribute, and support Geodetic Systems Inc. (GSI; Melbourne, FL;www.geodetic.com) new INCA3 Camera and V-STARS photogrammetry systems in the German and Austrian industrial marketplace. The science of measurement is known as the field of metrology. Engineers, manufacturers, scientists, and quality-control technicians use measurement technology in their own disciplines. Photogrammetry is a three-dimensional (3-D) coordinate-measuring technique that uses photographs as the fundamental medium for metrology. GSI offers a comprehensive product line based on industrial photogrammetry.
