All of the structures encountered so far in this book have been analyzed using monoscopic imagery data. It was noted, however, that the accuracy of reconstructing exposed geological structures diminishes as they approach the extremes of being highly or mildly deformed. In these cases, the variable relationships between geological structures and their topographic expressions as well as the lack of diagnostic features from inclined bedrock strata create a need for some sort of stereo mapping. Such efforts can be done by using satellite stereo data directly or by supplementing monoscopic interpretation of satellite imagery data with local mapping of structures with stereo aerial photography or radar. This chapter provides a brief introduction to the principles involved in creating stereo imagery data, specific applications to structural mapping and the equipment used for this analysis. Further discussions related to stereo photography equipment and general applications in geology may be found in Ray (1960), Wolf (1974), Slama (1980) and Petrie (1992).
