AIR-PHOTOGRAPH INTERPRETATION FOR ROAD ENGINEERS IN BRITAIN

A PRACTICAL ACCOUNT IS GIVEN OF HOW VERTICAL AIR PHOTOGRAPHS CAN BE USED IN STUDYING GROUND CONDITIONS IN BRITAIN IN CONNECTION WITH HIGHWAY ENGINEERING. SOURCES OF AIR PHOTOGRAPHS ARE GIVEN AND THE TECHNIQUES FOR EXAMINING PHOTOGRAPHS ARE DESCRIBED. APPLICATIONS OF AIR-PHOTOGRAPH INTERPRETATION ARE REVIEWED; THEY RELATE MAINLY TO THE ROUTE LOCATION AND SITE INVESTIGATION PHASES OF ROAD CONSTRUCTION, BUT INCLUDE USES DURING CONSTRUCTION AND AFTER THE ROAD HAS BEEN COMPLETED. EXAMPLES ARE GIVEN IN THE FORM OF STEREOPAIRS WITH AN EXPLANATORY TEXT, AND FULL INTERPRETATION WITH MAPPING IS ALSO ILLUSTRATED. THE REPORT SHOULD HELP ROAD ENGINEERS IN THE UNITED KINGDOM TO MAKE FULL USE OF AIR PHOTOGRAPHS AS A SUPPLEMENT TO OTHER SOURCES OF SITE INFORMATION, AND TO APPRECIATE THE POTENTIALITY AND LIMITATIONS OF AIR-PHOTOGRAPH INTERPRETATION WHEN COMMISSIONING WORK FROM SPECIALIST FIRMS. /RRL(A)/
