Ames Forester

Abstract

AERIAL PHOTOGRAPHY can bring the forest to your desk. Through aerial photos owners, managers, and field men now visualize the entire forest. Management plans, long dependent upon limited data from small field plots, can be amplified and checked under controlled office conditions through measurements made on the photos. Timber sales, access roads, recreational facilities, and even game management areas are planned through photo study. All forest mapping and most forest surveys are based on aerial photos. This wide acceptance by foresters of the aerial photo as a working tool parallels the development of photogrammetry and its use in many other technical and professional fields. Let us see why and how the aerial photo can help the modern forester.
