H. A. ERICKSON
ERIAL PHOTOGRAPHY may be placed in two classes —the oblique and the mapping. The first is an individual photograph of any object from various altitudes, possibly as high as 1500 ft. Such photographs show relative heights and contours. Map making by air consists of a series of overlapping photographs, probably in parallel flights and matched together in the laboratory or dark room either by contact printing or enlarging, and in proper proportion that the engineer may study them.
