Surveying and Photogrammetry Research Needs

Serial Information: Civil Engineering—ASCE, 1982, Vol. 52, Issue 2, Pg. 62-66

Document Type: Feature article


An ASCE-National Science Foundation committee listed and prioritized research needs in surveying and photogrammetry. Among them are the Department of Defense's Global Positioning System (satellite network), agricultural management and crop forecasting, measuring movement of the earth's crust along fault lines, thus hopefully to predict earthquakes; inertial surveying (using hardware descended from ICBM guidance systems); and developing standards, specifications and guidelines for digital data base systems (computer-made maps). Article briefly describes progress and problems in all five areas.
