The mensurational defects of tilted ground photographs cannot be overcome by simple mathematical means. The Mobius grid is a convenient tool for making accurate measurements from projected photographic images. A method of constructing a Mobius grid is described. A test on 20 sample trees showed that the regression of taped diameters on Mobius grid diameters had a coefficient of determination of 97 percent. Mean diameters measured on groups of photographed trees are likely to be within ±2 percent of taped diameters, though individual photo diameters may differ by ±12 percent. Forest Sci. 17:46-50.
