Editorial Reviews

`Anyone with a measurement problem to solve is likely to find this book an ideal starting point.' Optical World `Provides a compendium of practical information, prepared by contributors who have considerable experience in the field...A wide range of applications is covered.' Quality Today `This book deserves a place on the shelves..has a strong tendency towards practicality and applications..most useful in explaining a variety of techniques and how to solve problems with them.' The Photogrammetric Record `This excellent book...is very well written. The techniques are described in a lucid fashion with any background theory clearly explained. It is well illustrated with practical examples...and is valuable for the engineer.' Journal of Mechanical Engineering Science
