Abstract : In June, 1970 Rodman Snead made a field study of particular rock types in the San Felipe area of Baja California. Later that summer at a remote sensing institute at the University of California, Riverside, Douglas McDonald and Rodman Snead had an opporunity to study three different types of aerial photographs taken over the San Felipe region. The three types of photographs were medium altitude black and white vertical photographs, low altitude color infrared oblique photographs, and Apollo IX space photography. The purpose of this paper is to mention the landforms observed on the ground which can be easily viewed on these photographs and to discuss the advantages and disadvantages of using each of the three types.
