The referencing in space of the location of a point using a predefined coordinate system such as a national grid or latitude/longitude.
A 9" x 9" photograph taken vertically downward from the air on 10" roll film. Airphoto images may be in the form of paper prints or transparent film. An airphoto includes significant horizontal displacement introduced by camera characteristics, tilt, nearness to the target scene, and variations in elevation of the target terrain.
Photograph taken from an aerial platform (usually an aeroplane), either vertically or obliquely.
The process of combining smaller spatial units, and the data they contain, into larger spatial units by dissolving common boundaries and lumping the data together.
Map projections in which the surface of the globe is projected onto a flat plane.
Scaling,leveling and orientation to ground control of a stereo pair of aerial photographs during the photogrammetric setup process.
A nonflammable plastic sheeting used as a base for photographic fils or as a drafting base for overlays where critical registration is not required.
