Two aerial photo volume prediction models, Avery's Composite Aerial Volume Table, and Mead's Quadratic Model, were compared using graphs and a small independent test set. The graphs indicated that Mead's model predicted higher merchantable volumes for pine stands in central Mississippi than did Avery's model. Both models tended to underpredict ground merchantable volume. However, only Avery's model underpredicted in a statistically significant manner. Even though the possibility of negative volume predictions exists when using Mead's Quadratic Model, it was deemed the superior model of the two investigated.
