Cross-sections are vertical profiles taken at right angles to the survey centerline.   Landslide maps can be prepared using different techniques (Guzzetti, ).Selection of a specific technique depends on the purpose of the inventory, the extent of the study area, the scale of the base maps, the scale, resolution and characteristics of the available imagery (e.g., aerial photographs, satellite images, LiDAR elevation data), the skills and experience of the investigators, and.

Explain the difference oblique aerial photographs and vertical aerial photographs. State ONE disadvantage of oblique aerial photographs. State THREE disadvantage of oblique aerial photographs. State the type of oblique aerial photograph at C and D and identify the major feature found on the oblique aerial photographs. Aerial photographs are an invaluable source of information for the study of the nature and characteristics of the coastal and terrestrial environment. Vertical aerial photographs can be used to update existing base maps and to produce new base maps in the form of individual photographs or several photographs in assembled format known as mosaics. To determine the geometric features of road design, the following surveys must be conducted after the necessity of the road is decided. Type of surveys and investigations. A variety of survey and investigations have to be carried out by Road engineers and - Aerial photographs, approximate scale , Ethiopian Mapping Authority.   Chapter 11 Geometric Design Manual Mass Haul Diagram Ethiopian Roads Authority Page 11 EARTHWORK QUANTITIES AND MASS HAUL DIAGRAM Introduction The topic of geometric design would be incomplete without a chapter devoted to the issue of.

In some cases, only high-altitude aerial photographs (scales of , or ,) may be available for a particular site. A comparison of bankline positions from high-altitude photos with those from topographic maps may be difficult because of the significant scale difference. Unmanned aerial vehicle surveys performed before and after each stage of construction reveal the volume of earthworks. First, a reference surface is generated based on the survey conducted before the earthworks started. After the earthworks have finished, the situation is surveyed again, and a new surface model is generated for the terminated. FM of a proposed or existing cut or fill. Typical cross sections for a roadbed are illustrated in figure The determination of cross-section areas is.   Modern smartphones (and many digital cameras) embed GPS coordinates in each photo they take. Yes, those photos you’re taking have location data embedded in them—at least by default. You may want to hide this information when sharing sensitive photos online.
