PROCEEDINGS OF THE SYMPOSIUM ON TERRAIN EVALUATION FOR HIGHWAY ENGINEERING, TOWNSVILLE. 1971

TERRAIN EVALUATION FOR ENGINEERING PURPOSES PROVIDES A FORMALIZED SYSTEM FOR COLLECTING, RECORDING, COLLATING, STORING, AND RETRIEVING ENGINEERING INFORMATION, KNOWLEDGE AND EXPERIENCE, AS WELL AS A METHOD FOR VALID EXTRAPOLATION OF ENGINEERING KNOWLEDGE AND EXPERIENCE FROM PLACE TO PLACE, AND SERVES AS A BASIS FOR THE REGIONAL PLANNING OF ENGINEERING WORKS. IN AUSTRALIA, A SYSTEM OF TERRAIN EVALUATION (PUCE PROGRAM) HAS BEEN DEVELOPED WHICH REQUIRES NO SKILLS NOT NORMALLY POSSESSED BY ENGINEERS. IT IS ALSO COMPATIBLE WITH A COMPUTER STORAGE MEDIUM. THE SYSTEM CAN BE OPERATED AT TWO LEVELS: THE ONE PROVIDES THE BASIS FOR ENGINEERING EVALUATION FOR PLANNING PURPOSES; THE OTHER IS THE BASIS FOR PRODUCING THE DETAILED EVALUATION NECESSARY FOR ACTUAL CONSTRUCTION. /CSIRO/
