THE DIGITAL PHOTO MAP

THE USE OF A DIGITAL PHOTO MAP IS PROPOSED INSTEAD OF A TOPOGRAPHIC CONTOUR MAP FOR CIVIL ENGINEERING DESIGN. A DIGITAL PHOTO MAP CONSISTS OF A PAIR OF PHOTOGRAPHS ON WHICH PLANIMETRIC DISTANCES AND ELEVATIONS ON THE GROUND ARE INDICTED DIGITALLY. THE TERRAIN DATA OBTAINED AND STORED IN A COMPUTER CAN BE USED EFFECTIVELY IN THE DESIGN PHASE. CIVIL ENGINEERING DESIGN CAN BE DEFINED AS THE REPETITION OF A COUPLE OF ACTIONS SELECTING APPROXIMATE FIGURES ON A MAP AND THEN FEEDING THEM TO A COMPUTER SO AS TO MAKE AVAILABLE AN OUTPUT OF OBJECTIVE DIGITAL INFORMATION FOR A DESIGNER'S DECISION MAKING. IT CAN BE SEEN THAT DIGITAL PHOTO MAPS WILL PROVIDE A SHORT CUT BETWEEN THE PHOTOGRAPH AND THE COMPUTER N THE AREA OF ENGINEERING DESIGN.
