The integration of computer vision algorithms and photogrammetric methods leads to procedures that increasingly automate the image-based 3D modeling process. The main objective of photogrammetry is to obtain a three-dimensional model using terrestrial or aerial images. Calibration of the camera and detection of the orientation parameters are important for obtaining accurate and reliable 3D models. For this purpose, many methods have been developed in the literature. However, since each method has different mathematical background, calibration results may be different. In this study, the effect of camera interior orientation parameters obtained from different methods on the accuracy of three-dimensional model will be examined. In this context, a test area consisting of 21 points was used. The test network was coordinated in a local coordinate system using geodetic methods. Some points of the test area were selected as the check point and accuracy analysis was performed. Direct Linear Transformation (DLT) method, MATLAB, Agisoft Lens, Photomodeler, 3D Flow Zephyr software were analysed. The lowest error value of 7.7 cm was achieved by modelling with Agisoft Lens.
