REMOTE-SENSING APPLICATIONS TO ENVIRONMENTAL ANALYSIS

ENVIRONMENTAL LEGISLATION HAS FORCED THE HIGHWAY PLANNER TO LOOK FOR NEW AIDS TO HELP PROVIDE INPUT FOR THE COMPLEX ENVIRONMENTAL REPORTS NOW NECESSARY FOR HIGHWAY LOCATION APPROVAL. THIS PAPER REVIEWS TWO REMOTE-SENSING METHODS USED TO DATE BY THE FLORIDA DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION FOR ENVIRONMENTAL DATA ACQUISITION AND ANALYSIS. A CORRIDOR STUDY PREPARED BY PHOTO INTERPRETATION AND THE USE OF INFRARED SCANNING FOR WATER TEMPERATURE STUDIES AND UNDERGROUND VOID DETECTION ARE EXPLAINED IN DETAIL. THE RESULTS OF THESE STUDIES CONFIRM THAT REMOTE-SENSING TECHNIQUES CAN CONTRIBUTE SIGNIFICANTLY TOWARD FURNISHING FACTUAL ANSWERS TO MANY ENVIRONMENTAL PROBLEMS.
