SUPER-WIDE-ANGLE PHOTOGRAPHY FOR HIGHWAY MAPPING WITH AP/C AND A7

SUPER-WIDE-ANGLE (SWA) PHOTOGRAPHY WAS EVALUATED FOR USE IN HIGHWAY MAPPING AT MEDIUM SCALES BY EXPERIMENTS WITH THE NISTRI-ANALYTICAL PLOTTER AP/C AND THE WILD AUTOGRAPH, MODEL A7. BY USE OF PHOTOGRAPHY OF THE ARIZONA TEST SITE (USGS, AMS), ERROR ANALYSIS AND ADJUSTMENT PROCEDURES WERE DONE WITH SINGLE MODELS AND WITH A MULTI-MODEL STRIP. ALTHOUGH THE TESTS WERE LIMITED IN QUANTITY, THEY SHOWED THAT THE NISTRI-ANALYTICAL PLOTTER AP/C PRODUCES VERY HIGH QUALITY MEASUREMENTS AND PROVIDES AN EFFECTIVE MEANS FOR CONTROLLING SYSTEMATIC ERRORS. THE RESULTS INDICATE GREAT PROMISE FOR SWA PHOTOGRAPHY IN HIGHWAY MAPPING WHERE ACCURATE VERTICAL DATA ARE REQUIRED WITH BOTH THE NISTRI AP/C AND THE WILD A7, EVEN THOUGH THE WILD A7 WAS NOT EQUIPPED TO HANDLE SWA PHOTOGRAPHS DIRECTLY. /AUTHOR/
