Photo Interpretation Aids for Timber Surveys
Abstract:Aerial photographs are now used by many foresters as substitutes for maps, or to reduce field work on forest mapping projects. This article describes several inexpensive devices that simplify photo interpretation. These aids, or similar ones, are used by technicians on several extensive forest surveys. Rangers and others, who may refer to photographs only occasionally, should also find that the aids are useful pocket-sized additions to their field equipment.
