Abstract:

An investigation is reported which led to the production of a special type of photo interpretation manual - a manual on the interpretation of photography at extremely small scales. The aim of the investigation was to develop and present clues by which interpreters could extract intelligence concerning significant military targets from small scale, low resolution aerial photography. A system was developed for identifying targets by category, and methods are shown for extracting the maximum intelligence which the photography provides. Data is also developed indicating the effects on interpretability of increasing ground resolution. The manual, based on the results of the investigation, was designed as a training aid to assist interpreters in effective utilization of low resolution photography. Author
