Locating Potential Outdoor Recreation Areas from Aerial Photographs
Abstract:This study correlated standard photo interpretative techniques with seven criteria for identifying recreation land of high potential. They were population center factors, land use, water value, road systems, vegetation, aesthetic value, and unique features. All but the last two were consistently useful for recreation potential prediction. Seven scales of photography were tested using the criteria named. The 1:12,000 scale proved most effective. The results indicated that aerial photographs can be used effectively to locate potential outdoor recreation sites.
