LINEAR GEOLOGICAL FEATURES AS AN AID TO PHOTOGEOLOGICAL RESEARCH

AS MOST PHOTOGEOLOGICAL INTERPRETATION TENDS TO BE OF LINEAR FEATURES (E.G., FAULTS, ROCK AND SOIL CONTRACTS) IT IS SUGGESTED THAT THESE SHOULD BE EXPLOITED FOR RESEARCH STUDIES. IT IS POSSIBLE TO USE THEM TO ASSESS THE RELATIVE PERFORMANCE OF VARIOUS MEANS OF SENSING, THE FACTORS AFFECTING THE USEFULNESS OF SENSORS, AND TO DEVELOP INTERPRETATION CRITERIA FOR VARIOUS INSTRUMENTS AND ENVIRONMENTS. TO DO THIS IT IS NECESSARY TO RECORD THE CHARACTERISTICS OF THE APPEARANCE OF THESE LINEAR FEATURES ON THE AIR PHOTOGRAPHS OR IMAGERY, THE RELEVANT FIELD DATA, AND SITUATIONS WHERE FEATURES DO NOT SHOW. IF THE DETAILS ARE RECORDED FOR EACH FEATURE ON PUNCHED CARDS, A COMPUTER CAN BE USED TO TEST LARGE NUMBERS OF CORRELATIONS AND PERMIT A USEFUL INTERCHANGE OF DATA FILES BETWEEN RESEARCHERS WORKING ON DIFFERENT PROBLEMS IN DIFFERENT PLACES. IT COULD ALSO FORM A USEFUL PRELUDE TO ATTEMPTS TO CREATE AN AUTOMATIC PATTERN RECOGNITION SYSTEM. /AUTHOR/
