Abstract : The technical report presents multispectral aerial imagery illustrating a coastal-intracoastal environment near Boca Raton, Florida. This imagery was generated during January and February of 1967 and includes a vertical panchromatic photograph, oblique conventional infrared and color infrared photographs, and day and night thermal infrared images. The panchromatic photograph is used as an analytic base and the individual physical and cultural geographic phenomena recorded on each of the images are analyzed and compared. Photographs of selected ground locations are used to illustrate the various geographic phenomena included within the study area. The analytic discussion also includes relative merits and disadvantages of each type of sensor and spectral band in the geographic analysis of such an environment. (Author)
