    These are tools used by groups like HABS to indicate the precise size and scale of a building.

    I use targets too. We do stereo close-range photogrammetric recording of buildings with Wilde cameras and 2X3 glass plates. The targets are placed on the elevation photographed so that negatives have scale in them from the start. Very easily seen targets are taped to the wall and photographed, and are measured in for precise distance. Later, since you know the distance apart, the photo can be scaled accurately. We've done the White House, Christ Church in Weems, VA, Merchant's Exchange in Phila. and many more this way. Good for standard photography for scale-rectified results too.
