Abstract : A cooperation agreement between Aerophotogrammetric Service of Chilean Air Force (SAF) and the Faculty of Physical and Mathematical Sciences, University of Chile, has allowed to perform several interesting pilot experiences to study some problems regarding environmental pollution, urban road traffic, and other aspects related to civil engineering designs. The use of multiband camera and thermal infrared scanner has been very useful studying these problems. The use of conventional black/white aerial photographs to study urban traffic has been used to obtain successful preliminary results.
