THE CONTRIBUTION OF AERIAL PHOTOGRAPHY TO FEASIBILITY STUDIES OF RAILWAY ALIGNMENTS IN SUB-DESERT ZONES

APPORT DE LA PHOTOGRAPHIE AERIENNE AU NIVEAU DE L'ETUDE DE FAISABILITE SUR TRACES EN ZONE-SUBDESERTIQUE

The author gives an example of the use of aerial photography in the feasibility study of a railway alignment in a sub-desert zone. He shows the appreciable saving in time resulting from the use of this method to help define possible itineraries. Photo-interpretation at this stage consists mainly in drawing up a map of the obstacles to be avoided and analyzing the distribution of the materials able to be reutilized in the construction of the foundation.
