AERIAL SURVEYING HAS PRODUCED A NEW TYPE OF MAP KNOWN AS A MOSAIC, WHICH IS MADE BY ASSEMBLING A SERIES OF PHOTOGRAPHS. IT IS BELIEVED THAT A GOOD MANY HIGHWAY PROBLEMS CAN BE SOLVED BETTER AND MORE ECONOMICALLY BY THE APPLICATION OF AERIAL MAPPING. THIS APPLICATION IS NEEDED IN PLANNING A SYSTEM OF HIGHWAYS AND IN SELECTING NEW LOCATIONS. IT IS FELT THAT THE U.S. HAS FALLEN BEHIND IN THE APPLICATION OF AERIAL PHOTOGRAPHY TO ENGINEERING WORK. THE LATEST INSTRUMENTS ARE PICTURED AND DISCUSSED.
