scope:

Purpose. This manual provides procedural guidance, accuracy standards, technical specifications, and quality control (QC) criteria for performing photogrammetric and Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) mapping. It distinguishes aerial and satellite based photogrammetry and LiDAR from their terrestrial and mobile counterparts; qualifies the use of these terms to be solely applicable to aerial and satellite based methods; and references the appropriate manuals in which additional relevant information can be found. Rapid changes in technology and methodologies will cause some language in this document to become outdated; therefore, this manual provides guidelines to be followed, where applicable, instead of an absolute set of requirements requiring a waiver from HQ USACE to do something outside the language contained herein.

Applicability. This manual applies to all major subordinate commands, districts, laboratories and centers performing and/or contracting for aerial and satellite data acquisition, digital orthophotography, photogrammetric and/or LiDAR mapping services in support of planning, engineering and design, construction, operations and maintenance, and/or regulation of civil works or military construction projects. This manual is also applicable to US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) functional areas having responsibility for environmental investigations and studies, archeological investigations, historical preservation studies, hazardous and toxic waste site restoration, structural deformation monitoring investigations, regulatory enforcement activities, and support to Army installation maintenance and repair programs and installation master planning functions. Waivers from applicability should be requested by written memorandum to Headquarters, USACE (ATTN: CECW-CE).

intended Use:

Intended Use. This manual is intended to be the primary reference for contracted photogrammetric and LiDAR mapping services in support of USACE requirements. It shall be used as a guide... View More
