AERIAL ANALYTICAL TRIANGULATION; DEMONSTRATION PROJECT NO. 1

THIS PROJECT DEMONSTRATES THE COST SAVINGS THAT ACCRUE WHEN AERIAL ANALYTICAL TRIANGULATION IS USED, RATHER THAN GROUND SURVEYS ALONE, TO DEVELOP MAPPING CONTROL. AERIAL ANALYTICAL TRIANGULATION UTILIZES A COMPLEX MATHEMATICAL ANALYSIS OF PRECISE X-Y COORDINATE MEASUREMENTS OF ARTIFICIAL IMAGES, MARKED IN THE TRIPLE OVERLAP AREA OF A SERIES OF THREE, ADJACENT, OVERLAPPING AERIAL PHOTOGRAPHS, COMBINED WITH A LIMITED NETWORK OF GROUND SURVEY DATA TO DEVELOP A COMPLETE NETWORK OF CONTROL POINTS FOR USE IN STEREOSCOPIC MAPPING. RESULTS OF THE PROJECT SHOWED A SAVING OF $550 PER MILE UTILIZING AERIAL ANALYTICAL TRIANGULATION. /DOT/
