A Comparative Analysis of Various Methods of Photologging

Report No: 79-R45

Published in 1979

About the report:

Reported is the second of two evaluations of the potential use of photologging within the Virginia Department of Highways and Transportation. The film acquired in the first evaluation was used to establish a viewing station in a district office and the central office of the Department. Once Department personnel had gained experience with the photolog, interviews were held to determine the potential need for the data in the photolog, ascertain which divisions within the Department would be the greatest users, and select the preferred format for obtaining the data needed. The results included the establishment of activities in which the data could be used, the identification of the factors essential for the successful implementation of a photologging operation, and an estimated cost of establishing such an operation.
