  1. Aerial photogrammetry is a method of surveying involving the measurement and interpretation of features directly from aerial photographs. For ‘large’ projects, aerial survey by camera permits data capture and mapping at a pace more rapid than possible using field surveyors.
  2. Aerial Photography (Orthophoto) offers the best opportunity for the following applications:
    • City planning
    • Engineering designs for road and bridge constructions
    • Erosion control
    • Geographic Information System (GIS)
    • Resettlement and compensation
    • Investment opportunities
