URBAN TRAFFIC STUDIES FROM AERIAL PHOTOGRAPHS

TWO PROBLEMS CONCERNING THE USE OF AERIAL PHOTOGRAPHS FOR CONDUCTING TRAFFIC STUDIES IN URBAN AREAS ARE CONSIDERED IN THIS PAPER: (1) SUITABLE PROCEDURES REQUIRING SIMPLE EQUIPMENT AND METHODS AND THE APPROPRIATE FORMULAE FOR DETERMINING THE TRAFFIC CHARACTERISTICS OF DENSITY, VOLUME, TRAFFIC COUNT, SPEED, COMPOSITION; (2) PROBLEMS RELATING TO FLIGHT PLANNING FOR TRAFFIC SURVEYS FROM THE POINTS OF VIEW OF DURATION OF PHOTOGRAPHY AND THE SCALE OF THE PHOTOGRAPHY FROM CONSIDERATIONS OF THE RELIABILITY OF THE DETERMINED TRAFFIC CHARACTERISTICS, VEHICLE IDENTIFICATION, AND ALSO ECONOMY. THE CONCLUSIONS CONCERNING THE FLIGHT PLANNING WERE APPLIED IN A TEST FLIGHT FROM WHICH TRAFFIC DATA WERE DETERMINED AS ILLUSTRATED IN A SAMPLE CALCULATION. /TRRL/
