QUANTITIES

THE EXPERIENCE OF THE OHIO DEPARTMENT OF HIGHWAYS IS PRESENTED IN THE USE OF AERIAL PHOTOGRAPHY AND PHOTOGRAMMETRIC METHODS FOR COMPUTING EARTHWORK QUANTITIES ON FINAL CROSS-SECTIONS. PROGRESSIVE STEPS FROM THE DEVELOPMENT STAGE TO THE PRESENT UNIVERSAL USE OF THESE METHODS ARE OUTLINED. THE EXPERIENCE OF THE DEPARTMENT COVERS FOUR YEARS OF APPLICATION WITH SATISFACTORY RESULTS. COMPARISON BETWEEN PHOTOGRAMMETRIC METHODS OF COMPUTING FINAL CROSS-SECTIONS AND ACTUAL GROUND SURVEYS INDICATES THAT PHOTOGRAMMETRY IS GENERALLY MORE ACCURATE, MUCH MORE ECONOMICAL IN BOTH TIME AND MONEY, AND SAFER IN ALL RESPECTS. /AUTHOR/
