PHOTOGRAMMETRY AND HIGHWAYS

A PHOTOGRAMMETRIC UNIT WAS ESTABLISHED IN THE KENTUCKY DEPARTMENT OF HIGHWAY IN 1954. THE EQUIPMENT AND PERSONNEL ARE DESCRIBED. THE ENTIRE LENGTH OF THE PROPOSED KENTUCKY INTERSTATE SYSTEM WAS PHOTOGRAPHED AND MORE THAN 1000 LINEAR MILES OF FEDERAL, PRIMARY AND SECONDARY, ROUTES. THE AERIAL ENGINEERING SECTION USES PHOTOGRAMMETRIC TECHNIQUES FOR: (1) THE IDENTIFICATION OF DATA FOR THE RIGHT-OF-WAY DIVISION TO ESTABLISH THE COMPARATIVE VALUE OF LAND PARCELS, (2) AERIAL PHOTOGRAPHY FOR DISPLAYING PROPOSED HIGHWAY ROUTES TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC, (3) HIGHWAY SYSTEM PLANNING OPERATIONS AND HIGHWAY ROUTE LOCATION, (4) PHOTOGRAPHS FOR CORRELATION OF TRAFFIC ORIGIN AND DESIGN STUDIES, (5) ROAD LOCATION AND DESIGN OPERATIONS MAKING APPLICATIONS OF PHOTOGRAPHIC MATERIALS USING SMALL-SCALE STRIP MOSAICS OF AERIAL PHOTOGRAPHS FOR RECONNAISSANCE SURVEYING AND HIGHWAY ROUTE DETERMINATION, (6) RECORDING AND DISPLAYING ROADWAY CONSTRUCTION PROGRESS AND A CHECK ON CONSTRUCTION TECHNIQUES, (7) MEASURING CROSS-SECTIONS OF CONSTRUCTED HIGHWAYS TO DETERMINE EARTHWORK PAY QUANTITIES, AND (8) BEFORE-AND-AFTER SEQUENCE STUDIES OF PROPOSED CONSTRUCTION.
