PLANNING AERIAL PHOTOGRAPHY AND FILM PROCESSING FOR MAPPING WORK

ALL SUCCESSFUL ACCOMPLISHMENTS ARE ATTAINED THROUGH THOUGHTFUL PLANNING BY COMPETENT PERSONNEL. IT MAY BE A HIGHWAY SITE LOCATION, DESIGN, CONSTRUCTION, OR MAINTENANCE. AS THE AERIAL PHOTOGRAPH HAS AIDED THE HIGHWAY ENGINEER IN THESE ACCOMPLISHMENTS AND GROWS IN IMPORTANCE TODAY AND TOMORROW, IT STANDS TO REASON THAT HERE, TOO, THOROUGH PLANNING IS REQUIRED TO SUCCESSFULLY ATTAIN A PHOTOGRAPH FOR ITS REQUIRED PURPOSE. TO SECURE A USABLE PHOTOGRAPHIC NEGATIVE, IT MUST BE EXPOSED IN A SELECTED CAMERA IN THE PROPER RELATIONSHIP TO THE TERRAIN AND ITS ACCOMPANYING NEGATIVES, AND BE DEVLOPED BY PROVEN PROCEDURES USING CHEMICAL FORMULAS THAT WILL SATISFACTORILY CONVERT THE EMULSION INTO PERMANENT IMAGES OF RECOGNITION. TO ACQUAINT THE UNINITIATED AND FURTHER INFORM THE MORE EXPERIENCED OF SOME OF THE PROBLEMS CONFRONTING THE ENGINEER WHO PLANS AERIAL PHOTOGRAPHY AND PROCESSES FILMS FOR MAPPING WORK, THE PAPER DISCUSSES THE PHOTOGRAPHIC MISSION, INCLUDING RECONNAISSANCE, FLIGHT DESIGN, CAMERA AND AIRPLANE SELECTION, FLIGHT CREW, FILMS, FILTERS, AND EXPOSURES, AND FILM PROCESSING, INCLUDING PERSONNEL, EQUIPMENT, FACILITIES, PROCEDURES, DEVELOPERS, WASHES, FIXERS AND DRYING. /AUTHOR/
