MODERN DAY SURVEYS FOR HIGHWAY LOCATION AND DESIGN

SPIN-OFFS OF SPACE TECHNOLOGY AND DEFENSE ORIENTED RESEARCH PROJECTS PRESENT THE HIGHWAY ENGINEER WITH ADEQUATE MEANS OF SURVEYING TO DEMAND REQUIREMENTS. DESCRIPTIONS ARE PRESENTED FOR VARIOUS DISTANCE MEASURING INSTRUMENTS AND PHOTOBASE PLANS. A RESEARCH PROJECT TO EVALUATE CROSS SECTIONING BY PHOTOGRAMMETRY REVEALS THE CAPABILITIES OF SEVERAL STEREO PLOTTERS, AERIAL FILM, GROUND CONTROL, AND AERIAL PHOTOGRAPHIC PROCEDURES. THE USE OF ANALYTICAL PHOTOGRAMMETRY IN MATTERS INVOLVING GROUND POSITION DETERMINATION AND MEASUREMENT IS EVALUATED BY SEVERAL RESEARCH PROJECTS. USING TECHNIQUES AVAILABLE TODAY, ROUTE SURVEYS CAN BE CONCEIVED AND IMPLEMENTED IN ALL STAGES BY MANAGEMENT-LEVEL ENGINEERS. /AUTHOR/
