A mathematical model for the photogrammetric systematic residual errors has been formulated and its solution tested using the single photo resection residuals on observations. The predicted residual errors agree within possible limits with those obtained through adjustment procedures. The method furnishes information on residual distortion parameters in addition to checking for large observational errors and blunders. The predicted residual used for refining photo coordinates shows improvement in aerial triangulation accuracy.
