THE PROSPECTS FOR IMPROVING HIGHWAY PLANNING THROUGH REMOTE SENSING INFORMATION SYSTEMS: A CASE STUDY FOR MICHIGAN
This volume is the final report of a three year study funded by the National Science Foundation to identify and measure the impact of remote sensing on highway planning objectives. During that time the Environmental Research Institute of Michigan (ERIM) maintained a cooperative research program with the Michigan Department of State Highways and Transportation (MDSH&T) to focus on three major issues facing highway planners today: (1) the traditional problem of coordinating many divisions to achieve an integrated planning goal, (2) the institutional and programmatic reorganization engendered by the Action Plan guidelines of the Federal Highway Administration, and (3) the capacity of contemporary remote-sensing technologies to supply environmental information required for highway planning as practiced today.
