Paper Abstract

Several automated procedures have been developed and tested on photo interpretation students. Although these techniques are certainly more reliable and accurate than by-hand work, this was not the primary purpose behind their development. The goal, in fact, was to design photo analysis procedures which were more rapid and less subject to blunders. Two specific areas of development have been investigated. The first involves the use of the digitizer and computer for oblique mensuration work. Several self-documenting programs have been written to allow the photo interpreter to quickly and accurately determine the depression angle, then measure various kinds of images. The second kind of tool involves the use of an image analyzer in complex enumeration tasks on aerial imagery. This technology has been applied commonly in biology and elsewhere, but is not usual in the aerial photo interpretation process.
