AERIAL COLOR IN FORESTRY

THE MOST SIGNIFICANT IMPROVEMENT IN PHOTOGRAMMETRY IN RECENT YEARS HAS BEEN THE INTRODUCTION OF AERIAL COLOR PHOTOGRAPHS. AT THE SAME TIME, ELECTRONIC PRINTING OF AERIAL NEGATIVES ENHANCED THE INFORMATION CONTENT IN REPRODUCING BOTH BLACK-AND-WHITE AND COLOR MATERIALS. COLOR PHOTOGRAPHS PLAY AN IMPORTANT ROLE IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF AREAS FOR NEW TIMBER HARVEST METHODS, SOIL AND WATERSHED STUDIES, DEVELOPMENT OF RANGE AND REFORESTATION AREAS, PLANNING LAND DEVELOPMENT, AND STREAMBED AND FISH HABITAT STUDIES. COLOR PROVIDES A SIGNIFICANT INCREASE IN ACCURACY OF SPECIES IDENTIFICATION, IDENTIFICATION OF DEAD TREES, AND FACILITATES THE IDENTIFICATION OF PROPERTY CORNERS. IMAGE- POINT SELECTION AND IDENTIFICATION ARE IMPROVED BY AS MUCH AS 60 PERCENT. /AUTHOR/
