Image Map - Site 01

Image map was constructed by edge matching pole photographs collected with a 35 mm SLR camera from a 4 m high level camera platform. Each individual image was approximately 2.5 m wide and 1.5 m high. Photographs were assembled into edge mapped blocks that typically consisted of between 30 and 50 photographs. Survey marks on the rocks were accentuated (white dots) and used to register locations in the edge-matched photo blocks. Photo blocks were rectified and assembled to construct the photo mozaic map. The site 03 photomap was constructed from a total of 191 original photographs.
