A FEASIBILITY STUDY OF AERIAL IMAGING TECHNIQUES FOR PRECISE AIDS TO NAVIGATION POSITION DETERMINATION

An investigation of the feasibility of using aerial imaging techniques for verifying precisely the positions of aids to navigation was conducted. It was determined that such a method is technically feasible using cartographic aerial photography and precise photogrammetric data reduction. However, such a system would be impractical and expensive for Coast Guard use on a routine basis. (Author)
