Abstract or Summary
  • High-altitude color infrared photography is found to be an effective tool for forest inventory in the Umpqua National Forest of southwestern Oregon. Intelligent resource management requires the rapid, accurate, and economical inventory results that can be supplied by remote sensing. Color infrared film is shown to possess properties that make it well suited to high-altitude vegetation studies. U-2 color infrared imagery is used to simulate LANDSAT satellite data preceding its application in the study area. When compared to the U. S. Forest Service timber mapping product obtained from conventional black and white photography in the early l96Os, small scale color infrared displayed results superior or equal in nearly all aspects. However, extensive ground surveys are still required for accurate assessment of stand species composition.
