Large-scale aerial photo comparison for detecting pine dieback

Large-scale aerial photo comparison for detecting pine dieback

Australian Forestry 48(2): 102-108

Large-scale 70-mm colour and black-and-white aerial photographs were compared with ground observations for interpreting dieback in drought-stressed radiata pine. Eighty percent of classifications on black-and-white photos agreed with ground assessments, compared with 78% for colour. However, analysis of photo omissions and additions showed colour photos to be superior because they portrayed damage not detected on black-and-white photos.
