Abstract or Summary
  • Historically the U.S. Forest Service has used uncorrected aerial photographs to delineate proposed and past management activities on the land base it manages. Transferring a boundary from an image not planimetrically correct to a planimetrically corrected image introduces errors. Positional accuracy of boundaries affects the number of acres the Forest is accountable for managing, and the annual sale quantity (ASQ) or annual board feet targets. The purpose of this study was to develop a methodology that eliminated the need to transfer the boundary from an uncorrected to a corrected image. Raster and vector warping methods were evaluated with reference to positional accuracy and efficiency. Due to the rugged topography of the Siuslaw National Forest, selection of ground control points (GCPs) was an important function in the accurate transformation of images. A Vector warping method, Rubber Sheeting the ARC/INFO projective transformation for all digital GCPs, to all of the Global Position System (GPS) ground control points, provided the most accurate rectification of vector boundaries that had been digitized or scanned from an uncontrolled low elevation photograph.
