The Photogrammetry Section is responsible for all photogrammetric policies and procedures, maintaining the aerial imagery library, terrestrial scanning, and production of photogrammetric deliverables. The photogrammetric process consists of project planning, image acquisition, image processing, control data for image orientation, data compilation and mapping.
Photogrammetry is a surveying and mapping method that has many applications in the Department of Transportation. Applications of photogrammetry in surveying practice include planimetric & topographic mapping, site planning, earthwork volume estimation for proposed roads, compilation of digital terrain models (DTM), and image base mapping (orthophotography) for Design, Environmental, Traffic, Hydrology, Planning, and other functional units within VDOT, as well as by consultants.
