Abstract : Research concerned the use of photography and thermal imagery as tools for quickly retrieving relevant information from expansive and complex environs using aerial platforms such as aircraft, satellites, and towers. Research was directed toward specific topics of terrain, economic, cultural, and population characteristics of landscapes which are detectable via remote sensing from low and high flying aircraft and also orbiting spacecraft.
