POSSIBLE USES OF TERRESTRIAL PHOTOGRAMMETRY IN CONSTRUCTION WORK

THE AUTHOR POINTS OUT THAT, WHERE CLASSICAL METHODS OF MEASUREMENT SUCH AS AERIAL PHOTOGRAPHY ARE UNECONOMICAL OR UNRELIABLE, TERRESTRIAL PHOTOGRAMMETRY CAN SOMETIMES BE USED TO OBTAIN DESIGN PRINCIPLES. THIS METHOD IS SUITABLE FOR CLEARLY DEFINED TERRAIN, FOR EXAMPLE VALLEYS CUT THROUGH MOUNTAINSIDES, BRIDGES, BUILDINGS AND INDUSTRIAL AREAS. ADVANTAGES OF TERRESTRIAL PHOTOGRAMMETRY ARE (1) THE SAVING IN TIME AND COST WHICH IS ACHIEVED; (2) THE FACT THAT THE METHOD IS INDEPENDENT OF WEATHER CONDITIONS, AND (3) THE FACT THAT INACCESSIBLE TERRAIN CAN BE SURVEYED. /TRRL/
