OCCURACIES OF ANALYTICAL TRIANGULATION IN APPLICATIONS TO CADASTRAL SURVEYING

THE PRACTICE OF ANALYTICAL AEROTRIANGULATION HAS IN RECENT YEARS PROGRESSED TO THE POINT WHERE ACCURACIES, RELIABILITY, AND COST MAKE IT AN ATTRACTIVE ADJUNCT TO GROUND SURVEYING. THIS IS ESPECIALLY SO IN PROJECTS REQUIRING ESTABLISHMENT OF A MODERATE TO HIGH DENSITY OF POINTS. PHOTOGRAMMETRIC DENSIFICATION OF THE REGION WITHIN A BOUNDARY ESTABLISHED BY A SUITABLY DESIGNED GROUND SURVEY CAN OFTEN CUT OVERALL PROJECT COSTS TO AS LITTLE AS ONE-THIRD OF THOSE REQUIRED FOR DENSIFICATION BY GROUND SURVEYING -- AND CAN DO SO WITHOUT COMPROMISING ACCURACIES. SEVERAL EXAMPLES OF PROJECTS UNDERTAKEN BY DBA SYSTEMS, INC. AND OTHER ORGANIZATIONS ARE CITED TO DEMONSTRATE PROGRESS THAT HAS BEEN MADE. IN ADDITION, AVENUES FOR FURTHER IMPROVEMENT ARE SUGGESTED AND PROSPECTS FOR THE IMMEDIATE FUTURE ARE EXPLORED. THE PRESSING NEED FOR CLEARCUT, RECOGNIZED STANDARDS OF ACCURACY OF AEROTRIANGULATION IS NOTED, AND A PROVISIONAL SET OF STANDARDS IS SUGGESTED AS AN INTERIM MEASURE. /AUTHOR/
