Aerial Forest Mapping
Abstract:Many foresters have been intrigued by the possibilities of the airplane and aerial camera for making forest surveys and maps. The author, trained as a forester in America and Europe, has had much experience in developing the application of these new tools to forest work. He gives here his estimate of the possibilities and worth of aerial surveys. Particular advantages emphasized are high relative accuracy, speed in obtaining final results, and a 100 per cent coverage of the timbered area.
