USE OF THE KELSH PLOTTER IN GEO-ENGINEERING AND ALLIED INVESTIGATIONS IN KANSAS

THE PRACTICE OF OBTAINING DETAILED PHOTOGRAPHIC INFORMATION TO BE USED IN THE DESIGN, CONSTRUCTION AND MAINTENANCE OF HIGHWAYS HAS BEEN ADOPTED AS A ROUTINE OPERATION IN KANSAS. THE NEWER FIELDS OF PHOTOGRAMMETRY AND PHOTOGRAPHIC INTERPRETATION ARE RECOGNIZED AS AN ESSENTIAL METHOD OF INVESTIGATION. SOME OF THE PROCEDURES AND TECHNIQUES USED IN KANSAS IN AN ATTEMPT TO OBTAIN FULL EMPLOYMENT OF AVAILABLE AERIAL PHOTOGRAPHY AND THE CONDITIONS THAT EXIST TO WHICH THESE PROCEDURES HAVE BEEN ADAPTED ARE PRESENTED. BECAUSE OF THE FLAT LYING AND CONSISTENT NATURE OF THE DIFFERENT GEOLOGICAL FORMATIONS, THE GEOLOGY OF KANSAS LENDS ITSELF TO GEOLOGICAL FIELD INVESTIGATIONS. THE KELSH PLOTTER IS SUCCESSFULLY USED FOR MAPPING PURPOSES.
