PROCEEDINGS OF THE SIXTH INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM ON REMOTE SENSING OF ENVIRONMENT

AN EFFORT IS MADE TO ESTABLISH A CONTEXT WITHIN WHICH THE POTENTIAL OF SPACE PHOTOGRAPHY IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF URBAN AND TRANSPORTATION DATA SERIES CAN BE EVALUATED. SOME APPLIED ASPECTS OF SATELLITE PHOTOGRAPHY ARE EXEMPLIFIED THROUGH DETAILED ANALYSES OF GEMINI PHOTOGRAPHS OF HOUSTON AND SAN ANTONIO AND THEIR ENVIRONS. THE ANALYSES PROCEED BY LOCATING URBAN CENTERS, TRANSPORTATION FACILITIES, AND OTHER INDICATORS OF HUMAN ACTIVITY BY MEANS OF TONAL-TEXTURAL VARIATIONS, SIGNATURES, MEASURES OF ASSOCIATION, AND OTHER INTERPRETIVE METHODS. DIMENSIONS AND CHARACTERISTICS OF PHENOMENA ARE EMPLOYED TO ILLUSTRATE THE NATURE OF THE RESULTS OBTAINED. A DETAIL COST EFFECTIVENESS ANALYSIS OF THE VARIOUS PROCEDURES IS MADE, AND CERTAIN TENTATIVE CONCLUSIONS ARE REACHED. SPECIFIC USES OF SPACE PHOTOGRAPHY IN URBAN AND TRANSPORTATION PLANNING ARE SUGGESTED.
