Stereoscopic observations of 70 mm colour transparencies have been used in bundle adjustments to determine deformations of structural walls subjected to mine subsid- ence and the Newcastle, Australia, earthquake of magnitude 5.5 on the 28th December 1989. The photography was taken with a pair of Hasselblad 500 ELX cameras which had been modified by the addition of a glass reseau plate. The cameras were fixed 2 m apart on a bar, with camera-to-object distances varying from 10 m for the mine subsi- dence tasks to 30 m for some of the earthquake analyses. The stereoscopic observ- ations were made on an Adam Technology MPS-2 Analytical Stereoplotter with only the plate co-ordinates used in the bundle adjustment. Closures of under 4 micrometres on the frames were obtained from the bundle adjustments with an extremely low rejection rate of observations being a notable feature. The unusual combination of stereo- scopic observations, an analytical stereoplotter, non-metric cameras, bundle adjust- ments and a CAD program to provide timely results, is discussed.
