EVALUATION OF AERIAL PHOTOGRAPHY AND MAPPING IN HIGHWAY DEVELOPMENT

HIGHWAY OFFICIALS AND ENGINEERS, AND ALL OTHERS WHO ARE CONCERNED, CAN UTILIZE AERIAL SURVEYS FOR HIGHWAY ENGINEERING AND ASSOCIATED PURPOSES. REASONS FOR THIS ADVANTAGEOUS SITUATION ARE GIVEN WHILE AN EVALUATION OF SERIAL SURVEYS IS MADE. PRINCIPLES AND PROCEDURES ARE EXPLAINED. THE THREE PRINCIPAL CATEGORIES OF UTILIZATION ARE DISCUSSED, NAMELY PHOTOGRAPHIC INTERPRETATION, PHOTOGRAMMETRY, ILLUSTRATION AND DEMONSTRATION. THE SIGNIFICANT WAYS ARE OUTLINED IN WHICH AERIAL SURVEYS SERVE WELL AS A MEDIUM FOR TEAMWORK -- AN ESSENTIAL ELEMENT OF MODERN HIGHWAY ENGINEERING -- AND HOW SUCH SURVEYS FIT WELL INTO THE PATTERNS OF SEQUENTIAL STAGE ACCOMPLISHMENT OF HIGHWAY DEVELOPMENT. MENTION IS MADE OF TRENDS IN PHOTOGRAMMETRIC INSTRUMENTATION INFLUENCED BY THE HIGHWAY ENGINEERING USE OF AERIAL SURVEYS. PHOTOGRAPHY AND MAPPING SCALES, CONTOUR INTERVALS, AND COSTS ARE TABULATED. BENEFITS AS WELL AS LIMITATIONS OF AERIAL PHOTOGRAPHS AND MAPPING BY PHOTOGRAMMETRIC METHODS IN HIGHWAY DEVELOPMENT ARE GIVEN. ASPECTS OF AERIAL SURVEYS ARE SUMMARIZED WHICH ENABLE EACH HIGHWAY ENGINEERING TEAM TO DO BETTER ENGINEERING IN LESS TIME AND TO GET MORE SERVICEABLE HIGHWAYS FOR THE FUNDS AVAILABLE. /AUTHOR/
