Description: Technical report
Abstract: This report utilizes the 1,765 terrain data requirements presented in a USAETL experimental topographic data base system to determine subjectively the overall capability of remote sensor imagery to acquire terrain and environmental information. Remote sensor imagery (RSI) capabilities are evaluated by standard image-interpreter methods and are presented as five levels of capability and two levels of required mensuration. The capability codes are as follows: A - data element can be obtained from RSI; B – data element cannot presently be obtained from RSI; C - partial information obtainable; D - other collection methods required; E - data element not compatible with RSI methods; 1 - measurement in X and Y direction required; 2 - measurement in X, Y, and Z direction required. The results of these evaluations indicate that 40 percent of the terrain requirements fall in code A, 5 percent in code B, 38 percent in code C, 17 percent in code D, 13 percent in mensuration category 1, and 10 percent in category 2.
