HIGHWAY ROUTES IN UNDEVELOPED AREAS

THE REQUIREMENT FOR RECONNAISSANCE MAPPING IN THE EARLY STAGES OF HIGHWAY ENGINEERING UTILIZES THE ADVANTAGES OF AERIAL PHOTOGRAMMETRY. SPECIFICALLY APPLICABLE ARE UNDEVELOPED AREAS WHERE NO SUITABLE MAP COVERAGE EXISTS. THE USE OF EXISTING AERIAL PHOTOGRAPHY AND GROUND CONTROL IS NECESSARY IN DEVELOPING THE SURVEY. A TYPICAL PROJECT IN BOLIVIA EXTENDING FROM THE AMAZON JUNGLE NEAR SEA LEVEL TO OVER 15,000 FEET IS USED AS AN ILLUSTRATION. THE REQUIREMENTS, PROCEDURES, AND RESULTS, PLUS SOME OF THE PROBLEMS ENCOUNTERED BOTH IN THE OFFICE AND IN THE FIELD ARE IMPORTANT. THE EXTENT OF EXISTING CONTROL AND PHOTOGRAPHY, AS WELL AS NEWLY ACQUIRED CONTROL AND PHOTOGRAPHY, SERVE TO ILLUSTRATE THE PHOTOGRAMMETRIC PROBLEMS. /AUTHOR/
