    Aerial Photography and Image Interpretation, 2nd Edition


Low-altitude aerial photography is currently the only method of capturing detail at sub-meter resolutions and at a range of temporal points, which is integral to many resource and land-use management applications. The interpretation of this imagery is a necessary skill for all those involved in resource management, land-use planning, archeology, oceanography, forestry, and many other disciplines. This new edition will bring a respected book up to date with current technology and practice, additional coverage of the camera equipment used, more discussion of digital photography and color theory.
