    Description

    The primary objective of the research at the Manitou site was to determine at what classification level Skylab photographic products, or their equivalent, can be used for plant community classification in a central Colorado mountainous area. Secondary objectives were (1) to determine the kind of aircraft support photography needed to extend these classifications to other levels in the hierarchy, (2) to determine how both Skylab and aircraft support photography can be used to detect and identify cultural features of a mountainous landscape that could affect resource management alternatives, and (3) to make quantitative estimates of certain plant community characteristics from large-scale aircraft photography.
