OBLIQUE AERIAL PHOTOGRAPHY: A LIGHTWEIGHT TECHNIQUE APPLIED TO CIVIL ENGINEERING GEOLOGY AND ENVIRONMENTAL STUDIES

LA PHOTOGRAPHIE AERIENNE OBLIQUE. UNE TECHNIQUE LEGERE APPLIQUEE A LA GEOLOGIE DE GENIE CIVIL ET AUX ETUDES D'ENVIRONNEMENT

An attempt is made to define the possibilities offered by oblique aerial photography in the context of studies of the natural environment applied to regional planning problems. An analysis is conducted of the parameters to be taken into account to identify ground features which appear transiently and are related to the nature of the soil, differential moisture content and evolutions in vegetation. A number of experimental sites were selected for taking a series of oblique photographs, taking account of the season, agricultural conditions, climatic conditions prior to the sensors. The results obtained are discussed as a function of the geological context and are illustrated. Although it is not yet possible in many cases to define ideal conditions for the objective sought, it is possible for the present to decide the optimum moment at which a specific study should start.
