This paper describes a new method that has been developed to automatically generate by digital photogrammetry a digital terrain model (DTM) using a combination of feature points, grid points, and 'filling back' points. Software to implement the method is designed to run on a PC platform. Tests have demonstrated the capability of the method to give encouraging results.
