This article covers the principles of stereoscopic imaging and measurements. It explains stereoscopic image-generation techniques and the available methods of stereoimage display. 3D measurements in stereoimages and the related mathematics are explained, together with required hardware equipment and software. The generation of products such as digital elevation models, orthophotos and semiautomatic produced maps, resulting from the 3D measurements, is explained.
