Abstract

This manual is intended to provide an introductory look at uses of aerial photography for collection and analysis of wetland information. Obtaining information is difficult due to access limitations, short field seasons, and potential wildlife disturbance. To fulfill information needs concerning their location and variety, consideration is given to inventory and change detection techniques. In essence, this is a short review of capabilities of aerial photography for assessing wetland resources.
