A three-man team carried out the outside work. The time and cost
involved in making the same measurements with tape measure and
plumb bob, including the setting up of scaffolding and the time-
consuming manual methods which nonetheless never do cover the
entire object would be significantly greater. Similar studies have
demonstrated the photogrammetric plot of a façade can save 60 %
of the time needed for a manual plot. The use of the Wild P 31
super-wide-angle camera would result in a further saving of time.
The surface area covered by the camera at distance D is 5 D^. With
the wide-angle camera, f = 10 cm, under the same conditions only
one-fifth of the object surface could be covered.
The photography/plotting time ration is quite remarkable: previous
experience indicates a 1:5 ratio. The efficiency of the new super-
wide-angle lens is not under discussion.
These figures have been confirmed by the experience of other inst
rument users. For example, the following data is derived from an
archaeological excavation at St. Frambourg in France:
