Increased use of remote sensing techniques has been promoted for 30 years. Early emphasis was on photointerpretation for engineering soils mapping and construction materials exploration. For the past 10 years, however, investigations of engineering applications of a wide range of sensing techniques have been undertaken as a cooperative State/Federal/Contract effort. This approach to operational engineering applications has been formalized into the current Federally Coordinated Program of Research and Development. The flexibility of cooperative efforts and continued interest in remote sensing developments will allow the Federal Highway Administration to provide practicing transportation engineers with more effective approaches to many current and anticipated problem areas.
