in a grassroot project where u have a few hundred iso's, the use of stereo photo's seems to be a viable option to complete the as-built as part of the project deliverables in a format that can be read either by microstation or bentley. but there is a stumbling block that prevents its wide acceptance - the cost. ive seen the presentation and its a real cutting edge tech.

I may come across as a dinosaur at times, but hey, technology is not moving fast enough for me so I bitch.

Another thing I want to see widely adopted is photogrammetry for direct input into CAD models for as-builts and upgrade projects. The technology seems to be just dragging along though.

Is the foot dragging due to tech problems, management uncertainty or the perpetually poor economy these days?
