Abstract:

This research tested three methods of obtaining land use information by remote sensing for United States Air Force USAF land use planning. The three methods tested were 1 photo interpretation of aircraft photography 2 equidensitometric processing of aircraft or landsat imagery and 3 statistical analysis of Landsat digital data. The two sites tested were McChord AFB and Fairchild AFB in Washington State. Using test scenarios of mission realignments it was found that photo interpretation was an accurate and ready means to obtain land use information. Author
