AERIAL PHOTOGRAPHY FOR RESIDENTIAL SUBDIVISION SITE SELECTION
Predevelopment site analysis can play a critical role in site selection/evaluation of low-medium density subdivision housing. A more efficient and sensitive planning process can be developed if techniques of aerial photographic interpretation and computer data analysis are utilized. The data needs relevant to the location of low-medium density subdivision housing are identified and organized to form a location (site selection) model. The specified data needs were interpreted from aerial photographs evaluating the most suitable film type, scale, and date. Black and white, color, and color infrared photographs were obtained for five New England sites that served as test areas. Scales ranged from 1:4800 to 1:70000 and dates of coverage included spring, summer, and fall.
