Stereophotoclinometry

Stereophotoclinometry is a technique used to generate ultra-high resolution digital elevation models (DEM) from images. This is typically used in NASA spacecraft missions to asteroids and comets. It has also been used for making DEMs of the Moon and the Earth.

It was created by Dr. Robert Gaskell who works at the Planetary Science Institute.
