The objective of the work included in this report was to evaluate multiband and color photography with several filmfilter combinations for their application to information extraction for Military Geographic Intelligence. Two studies were performed on aerial photography for which ground truth data was obtained in the Phoenix, Arizona, test area. One study concerned the derivation of terrain data from four filmfilter combinations Plus X with 47B, 58, and 25A filters and Infrared with 89B filter. The second study was an evaluation of black-and-white, normal-color, and false-color imagery with regard to their information content. Details for each type of filmfilter combination are given as well as a summary of the findings. Author
