DETERMINATION OF COST, TIME, AND ACCURACY IN OBTAINING EARTHWORK PAY QUANTITIES FROM PHOTOGRAMMETRIC SURVEYS AS COMPARED TO CONVENTIONAL FIELD SURVEY

A COMPARISON IS MADE BETWEEN A CONVENTIONAL FIELD METHOD AND PHOTOGRAMMETRIC METHOD OF OBTAINING TERRAIN CROSS-SECTIONS FOR EARTHWORK QUANTITY DETERMINATION. THE CONVENTIONAL FIELD SURVEY AND PHOTOGRAMMETRIC METHOD WERE COMPARED AGAINST DATA FROM A PRECISE GROUND SURVEY. THE COMPARISON WAS MADE IN TERMS OF COST, TIME AND ACCURACY. ADVANTAGES AND DISADVANTAGES OF BOTH FIELD AND PHOTOGRAMMETRIC METHODS ARE GIVEN. THE PHOTOGRAMMETRIC SURVEY WAS FOUND TO BE AS ECONOMICAL AND ACCURATE AS CONVENTIONAL FIELD METHODS. /FHWA/
