Abstract:

AMRL has developed a system to aid in the rapid mapping and the management of information gathered at aircraft accident and incident sites. This system is based on commercial mapping instrumentation which uses differentially corrected Global Positioning System GPS data, a medium resolution digital camera and a geographical information system GIS software package. This paper introduces GPS, GIS and digital imaging, their use in the mapping and analysis of aircraft accidents, and a description of the AMRL equipment.
