Description

The first steps creating an orthophoto of a study transect in alpine tundra south of the Alaska Range.
1) Three overlapping screen captures from Bing Maps which cover the area of the transect.
2) Four overlapping high altitude (~500 feet) photos from a kite-lofted camera covering the area of plot MA4.
3) Annotations (based solely on the iamges) marking the plot corners, plot edges, and some spruce seedlings in the plot for aligning lower altitude kite photos.
4) Next step is to align the lower altitude photos.

A view of this transect from the ground is here: photosynth.net/view.aspx?cid=afdab7c5-9a12-48c9-a0be-a4789995a4d3 Will open in a new tab or window.
