CRITICAL TERRAIN ANALYSIS

VERY OFTEN, ONLY MARGINAL RESULTS IN THE ANALYSIS OF COLOR AND COLOR INFRARED AERIAL PHOTOGRAPHS HAVE BEEN ACHIEVED DUE TO THE INABILITY OF THE USER TO OPTIMIZE THE PARAMETERS AFFECTING THE FINAL RECORDED TERRAIN IMAGE. A QUALITATIVE ANALYSIS OF THE SOLAR SPECTRUM, FILMS, FILTERS, PROCESSING, CAMERA LENS, FOCUSING, EXPOSURE, AND TERRAIN CHARACTERISTICS IS PRESENTED TOGETHER WITH THE SELECTION OF PROPER COLOR BALANCE FOR BOTH COLOR AND COLOR INFRARED PHOTOGRAPHY. THE EARTH'S SURFACE IS CONSIDERED UNDER FIVE BASIC CATEGORIES: (1) VEGETATION, (2) EXPOSED SOILS AND ROCKS, (3) WATER, (4) SNOW AND ICE AND (5) URBAN AREAS. THE VARIABLES, INCLUDING REFLECTANCE CHARACTERISTICS, ARE CONSIDERED IN DETAIL, AND AUGMENTED BY COLOR PHOTOGRAPHIC EXAMPLES. /AUTHOR/
