AERIAL ANALYTIC TRIANGULATION INVESTIGATION ON INTERSTATE 80 IN WYOMING

RESULTS ARE REPORTED OF AN INVESTIGATION OF AERIAL ANALYTIC TRIANGULATION ALONG A 20,000-FOOT SEGMENT OF INTERSTATE HIGHWAY 80 IN WYOMING. ELEVEN AERIAL PHOTOGRAPHS TAKEN AT A SCALE OF 1:6000 WERE ANALYTICALLY BRIDGED USING X AND Y COORDINATES MEASURED ON GLASS PLATE TRANSPARENCIES OF THE PHOTOGRAPHS WITH A NISTRI MONOCOMPARATOR. A WILD PUG POINT TRANSFER AND MARKING INSTRUMENT WAS ALSO UTILIZED. THE MATHEMATICAL METHOD OF ANALYTIC TRIANGULATION EMPLOYED IS A MODIFIED VERSION OF THE ONE ORIGINALLY DEVELOPED BY THE U.S. COAST AND GEODETIC SURVEY. THE SYSTEM CONSISTS OF FOUR SEPARATE PARTS: PLATE COORDINATE REFINEMENT, RELATIVE ORIENTATION, CANTILEVER ASSEMBLY, AND CANTILEVER STRIP ADJUSTMENT. THIS ANALYTIC METHOD WAS PROGRAMMED IN FORTRAN LANGUAGE AND THE COMPUTATIONS WERE MADE WITH THE IBM 1401 AND 7010 ELECTRONIC COMPUTER SYSTEMS. /AUTHOR/
