Abstract:Imagery Interpretation is a timed-tested technique for extracting landscape-level information from aerial photographs and other types of remotely sensed data. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Environmental Photographic Interpretation Center (EPIC) has a 25+ year history of utilizing aerial photo interpretation to provide research and technical support to the EPA Regions and Program offices in support of major environmental mandates such as CERCLA, RCRA, CWA, CAA Imagery Interpretation techniques are still widely used today and in conjunction with modem geo-spatial analysis methods, provide an important source of information on landscape condition and activities. This presentation will demonstrate the contemporary applications of environmental aerial photographic interpretation including hazardous waste, emergency and disaster response, landscape ecology, accuracy assessment, and litigation support.
