Abstract:Hand-held, small-format (35-mm) aerial photography can provide reliable measurements for geographic information system (GIS) data collection. This article presents a waste-site investigation in which a digital monoplotter was used to capture measurements from enlarged 35-mm oblique photography. Smallformat overlapping photography was used to create a digital elevation model, which supplied elevation data for digital monoplotting. Point locations for installing monitoring instruments were plotted on a single 35-mm photograph (1:5,187 scale) and subsequently were located in the field with 43-cm accuracy. Results suggest the low-cost method is suited for waste-site investigations and GIS data capture.

- Cartography and Geographic Information Science (CaGIS) is the official publication of the Cartography and Geographic Information Society. CaGIS supports research, education, and practices that improve the understanding, creation, analysis, and use of maps and geographic information. The society serves as a forum for the exchange of original concepts, techniques, approaches, and experiences by those who design, implement, and use geospatial technologies through the publication of authoritative articles and international papers. The role of the CaGIS journal is to facilitate these objectives by disseminating results and reports in these areas of interest.
Cartography and Geographic Information Science (CaGIS) is now being published by Taylor & Francis as of 2013. Please visit the Journal's website at www.tandfonline.com/tcag or contact email@example.com to subscribe and obtain online access.
