Abstract
The objectives of this study were the evaluation of the technical and economical feasibility of utilizing color and color infrared aerial photography to satisfy some informational needs for premine planning, and mine progress and reclamation monitoring. Seven aerial data collection missions were conducted within a 2-year period over strip mine sites in Pennsylvania. Scales of 1:6,000, 1:12,000, 1:24,000, and 1:48,000 were flown on the first aerial mission. The 1:12,000 was chosen as the optimal scale for the remaining six flights. An extensive literature and legislative review and discussion with strip mine operators identified the informational parameters that could possibly be obtained from aerial photography. Those parameters that could be mapped, identified, or measured with accuracies greater than or equal to 75 percent were incorporated into a photointerpretation training manual.
