COMPARISON OF COLOR, COLOR INFRARED, AND PANCHROMATIC AERIAL PHOTOGRAPHY

This paper compares color, color infrared, and panchromatic vertical 35mm aerial photographs taken in the southern Rauhine Mountains, New Zealand. The capability of the three film types is assessed in order to gauge their effectiveness in distinguishing the following features: alignments, fault pug zones and seepage areas, eroded surfaces, erosion types and processes, vegetation types and condition, and drainage pattern. Of the three film types, color infrared was the most effective in distinguishing the features.
