GIS 4035C Remote Sensing of the Environment Dr. Roberts Lab 1: Calculating the scale of an aerial photograph __/25 points Tip for calculations: make sure your using all the same units. The rest is simple algebra equations. Make sure to show your work and to circle your final answer. 1. Determine the scale/RF of an aerial photograph taken from 15,000 feet above mean sea level over a land surface having an elevation of 1,250 feet above mean sea level. Camera focal length is 8.25 inches. (5 points) 2. You need to obtain photographs at a scale of 4 inches per mile with a camera focal length of 6 inches. Average ground elevation of the area to be photographed is 1,500 feet above mean sea level. What flight altitude, in feet, above mean sea level must be maintained to obtain the desired scale? (5 Points) 3. Two points on a highway are exactly one mile apart. If the corresponding photo distance is 4.2 inches what is the scale of the photograph? (5 Points) For the remaining four questions, you will be using the measuring tool in ArcGIS. See steps in the PowerPoint and Lab 1 - Getting Started document.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
