VRMapper Operations Manual

This operation manual outlines basic methods for capturing photo survey networks, performing a horizontal and vertical least square adjustment of photo survey observations, how to validate the laser ranger platform and provides details on how to map/measure visible objects using panorama images.  I recommend that you read Unleashing The Power Of The Panorama - Part II for a general overview of the VRMapper process.  (please note that this part is under construction and is presented as a draft outline at this time. If there is community interest, it may be best to migrate this part to a wiki).
