Description:
Abstract:
A 1974 color air photo of Mulkey Meadow was scanned and georeferenced for use in a GIS
Purpose:
The georeferenced photo can be overlain in a GIS by other photos to detect change in landscape features such as vegetation and stream courses over time.

Process_Description:
The air photo was scanned at 300 dpi and saved as a TIF formatted image. The TIF image was then geo-referenced to the Cirque Peak 7.5' USGS digital orthophoto quad. ArcView Image Analyst v. 1.0 software was used to match points on the scanned TIF file with points on the DOQ for georeferencing.
