25 Pulfrich’s stereocomparator (Zeiss, 1901) measurement seemed to offer so tantalisingly. Only analogue computation could extend the possibility of instantaneous feedback to the observer. If many surveyors regarded analogue computation as an aberration, then it became a remarkably successful one for a large part of the 20th century. During the latter part of the 19th century and in several countries much effort and imagination was directed towards the invention of stereoplotting instruments, necessary for the accurate and continuous plotting of topography.

The stereoscope had already been invented between 1830 and 1832 (Wheatstone 1838) and Stolze had discovered the principle of the floating measuring mark in Germany in 1893 (Sander 1923). Two other scientists, Pulfrich in Germany and Fourcade in South Africa, working independently and almost simultaneously1, developed instruments for the practical application of Stolze’s discovery (Meier 2002, Atkinson 2002). Their stereocomparators permitted simultaneous settings of identical measuring marks on the two photographs and the recording of image coordinates for use in subsequent numerical computations; points were fixed by numerical intersection and measurement was still made point by point (Fig.
