THE BARIOUS PROBLEM-ORIENTED AREAS FOR WHICH PHOTO INTERPRETATION TECHNIQUES PROVIDE USEFUL INFORMATION ARE DESCRIBED. PROBLEM AREAS DISCUSSED UNDER UNCONSOLIDATED MATERIALS INCLUDE ROADWAY FOUNDATION STABILITY AND ANALYSIS, STRUCTURE FOUNDATION, SLOPES, SUBGRADE AND EXCAVATING CHARACTERISTICS. PROBLEM AREAS DISCUSSED UNDER ROCK INCLUDE: ROADWAY FOUNDATION STABILITY AND SUBSIDENCE, SLOPES, AND EXCAVATING CHARACTERISTICS. SPECIAL SITUATIONS SUCH AS MINES, TAILINGS, AND UNDERCLAYS, AND MATERIAL SOURCES ARE ALSO DISCUSSED.
