Regarding the aerial images used in the fields in which a very high accuracy of the evaluated parameters is not necessary, approximate methods of determining the size of the photographed elements can be used. The present paperwork represents a study regarding the distance evaluation between two points in relation with the height of the camera, based on the theory of regression. Following the analysis of several images taken from different heights of 25-70 m, high values of the correlation coefficient were determined as well as the value sig f. of 0.002 respectively F = 414.7, for the inverse function, which indicated a higher confidence level in the functional model.
