The need to check and supplement photogrammetric mapping by topographers in the field cannot be avoided. Many things can only be properly recognized and evaluated on the ground and from another viewpoint. On the whole, however, photogrammetry has led to extraordinary progress in topographic mapping from the qualitative as well as the quantitative and economic points of view.

This test method, however, has gaps and does not cover all aspects of the contour image. Above all, it does not adequately test the small changes in contour lines. e. of nature and the map. Sometimes nature is replaced here by the method of random sampling; by especially accurate control contour mapping of small areas. 6. Some additional methods oi examining contour lines The shortcomings of the testing technique which employs the Koppe formula have repeatedly given rise to criticism; especially since the development of photogrammetry.
