THE PHOTOGRAMMETRIC METHOD AS A MEANS OF PROVIDING HIGHWAY ENGINEERS WITH AN INTEGRATED AND COMPLETE SYSTEM OF SURVEYING

THE FEASIBILITY OF DEVELOPING A COMPLETE SYSTEM OF SURVEYING, BASED ON PHOTOGRAMMETRIC METHODS, WAS INVESTIGATED. IT WAS DEMONSTRATED THAT THE PHOTOGRAMMETRIC METHOD IS A SCIENCE CAPABLE OF PROVIDING HIGHWAY ENGINEERS WITH AN INTEGRATED AND COMPLETE SYSTEM OF SURVEYING FOR OBTAINING THE QUALITATIVE INFORMATION AND QUANTITATIVE DATA ABOUT THE GROUND SURFACE REQUIRED FOR THE ROUTE LOCATION, PRELIMINARY SURVEY, DESIGN, LOCATION SURVEY, AND CONSTRUCTION STAGES OF URBAN HIGHWAY PROJECTS. ALL EXCEPT THE LAST TWO STAGES CAN BE COMPLETED PRIOR TO A GROUND SURVEY PARTY OCCUPYING THE ACTUAL CENTERLINE OF ANY PARTICULAR PROJECT /TRADITIONALLY, THIS WAS THE FIRST STAGE COMPLETED/. URBAN PROJECTS ARE EMPHASIZED BECAUSE IN THIS TYPE OF PROJECT THE MAXIMUM UTILIZATION OF THE PHOTOGRAMMETRIC METHOD CAN BE REALIZED.
