USES OF PHOTOGRAMMETRY BY THE WISCONSIN STATE HIGHWAY COMMISSION

PHOTOGRAMMETRIC ENGINEERING FIRMS FURNISH TOPOGRAPHIC MAPS AND ALLIED DATA FOR THE PLANNING, LOCATION, AND DESIGN OF HIGHWAYS IN WISCONSIN. THE SERVICES OF PHOTOGRAMMETRIC ENGINEERING FIRMS FOR TAKING AERIAL PHOTOGRAPHY AND COMPILING TOPOGRAPHIC MAPS HAVE BEEN ENGAGED BY NEGOTIATING RATHER THAN BY BIDDING, AND EXCELLENT RESULTS WERE OBTAINED. THE DESIGN SECTION OF THE STATE HIGHWAY COMMISSION OF WISCONSIN HAS CONSTRUCTED A SIZEABLE NUMBER OF INDIVIDUAL PHOTOGRAPHIC MOSAICS IN VARIOUS FORMS FOR REPORTS AND PUBLIC HEARINGS. GOOD RESULTS WERE OBTAINED FROM THE USE OF OBLIQUE PHOTOGRAPHY FOR RIGHT-OF-WAY PURPOSES. A COMPLETE OBLIQUE PHOTOGRAPHY RECORD OF 50 MILES OF INTERSTATE HIGHWAY CONSTRUCTION FROM LOCATION SURVEYS STAKING TO ROADWAY SURFACING, WAS ACCOMPLISHED IN COOPERATION WITH THE U.S. BUREAU OF PUBLIC ROADS WITH THE COOPERATIVE ARRANGEMENT BETWEEN THE HIGHWAY AND AERONAUTICS COMMISSIONS. PRESENT PLANS CALL FOR A CONTINUATION OF NEGOTIATING ENGINEERING CONTRACTS FOR THIS TYPE OF SERVICE.
