Abstract. Multi-Camera-Rover are recently coming up for usual terrestrical surveying tasks. This technique is new for the surveyors. Although photogrammetric specialists realize the benefits of such systems immediately, surveyors have difficulties to find efficient usages. To approach this new measurement systems the technique has to be understood and the confidence on the accuray has to grow. In this paper we analyze the accuracy of a Multi-Camera-Rover using an indoor testfield by photogrammetric algorithms. The results show that the knowledge of the interior orientation parameter of the cameras and the relative orientation of the cameras is essential for precise geometric reconstructions. Knowing these additional data, high accurate results become possible.
