THE BRIEF HISTORY OF AERIAL SURVEYS CONTAINED HERE IS AN EFFORT TO RECOUNT AS ACCURATELY AS POSSIBLE THE ADOPTION AND USE OF AERIAL PHOTOGRAPHY METHODS THROUGHOUT NORTH AMERICA. SPECIFICALLY, THE USES REFERRED TO ARE THOSE ESPECIALLY APPLICABLE TO HIGHWAY ENGINEERING. CONSIDERABLE DEVELOPMENT AND PROGRESSIVE WORK WERE ACCOMPLISHED IN THE FIELD OF PHOTOGRAMMETRY AND STEREOPHOTOGRAMMETRY MANY YEARS BEFORE THEIR ADOPTION AND USE BY THE HIGHWAY ENGINEERING PROFESSION. CONSEQUENTLY, INDENTIFICATION OF SEVERAL FIRST USES DO NOT PERTAIN TO USES IN THE HIGHWAY ENGINEERING FIELD BUT ARE EARLY DEVELOPMENTS OR USES IN OTHER FIELDS OF ENDEAVOR THAT PRECEDED ADAPTATIONS AND DEVELOPMENTS FOR HIGHWAY ENGINEERING PURPOSES.
