Abstract
Photologging programs are now conducted by at least four provincial highways departments in Canada, British Columbia, New Brunswick, Ontario, and Quebec, in that order. Each of these departments have in turn moved into photologging by initially constructing their own equipment, and after assessing the tremendous potential of the technique in their applications, have moved on to purchase or consider commercial equipment designed and constructed to meet the exact and specific requirements of the experienced user. This paper deals with the development of photologging equipment and its use in Canada - at first by the Departments of Highways of British Columbia and New Brunswick - and the gradual involvement of B.C. Research and Techwest Enterprises Ltd. in taking over the continuous development and supply of equipment designed to match the rapidly expanding needs of highways' engineers as their own analytical requirements and field applications increase.
