Abstract : Terrain factor maps have been established for the following data: land-use (basic information); crop type; crop/vegetation height; and crop/vegetation condition. A continuous flight line map at the scale 1:2.500 (600' flight height) plus single overlays (M=1:500, 300' flight height) were prepared in detail. As the meteorological data and also interviews clearly indicate, 1982 had extremely dry summer conditions. Thus, all beef-raising crops (pastures, rape, etc.) and also truck crops yielded quite good crops. It was sometimes difficult to identify characteristic differences between beef-raising crops and meadows/pastures because of the extremely poor crop conditions of these areas (which resulted in untypical colours and textures).
