In the first two methods, we estimated predation rates based on the difference in calf/cow ratios outside and inside the wolf pack territory from (1) hunter observations and (2) aerial ://   Aerial photographs arc important information sources for forest inventory.

With the development of science and technology, an automated approach to aerial photograph interpretation has been sought. This paper introduces an experimental computer system for the auto-interpretation of aerial photographs.

On thebasis of the experimental system, several algorithms are developed for the   nary stages of survey and planning work.

To carry out accurate surveys using ground methods alone is a costly and lengthy proce­ dure involving large amounts of men and equipment.

The answer to this need for speed in the preparation of maps and plans is the use of aerial survey techniques. Many people tend to regard aerial survey   With the advent of public use of geographic positioning systems and the availability of aerial photographs (Google Earth) for free over the internet, forest surveyors now have extraordinary tools available to do make accurate surveys ofalong with these new tools, foresters also depend on time-tested techniques to reconstruct forest ://   A great majority of the small scale maps (, or smaller) constructed today are made from aerial photographs by means of techniques based upon this radial line principle.

Provided that a series of points visible on the aerial photographs are carefully located by ground surveying, the position of a series of points on each and every A survey begins with aerial photography. In order to cover Canada's vast forested areas, more than one million photographs to a scale ofare needed.

The photographs are taken from an aircraft using a high-precision camera. Photo-interpreters then use special devices such as stereoscopes to examine the photographs :// Aerial Photographic Survey photographic surveying of a locality from the air by means of a special-purpose aerial camera mounted on an airplane, helicopter, dirigible, artificial earth satellite, or rocket.

Based on the view from above the team leader would be able to identify the fastest and most feasible access to survivors. Aerial photos would also allow together with locals of the neighbourhood to identity potential survivors without even understanding the local language thus avoiding misunderstandings and the waste of live-saving ://   • It is a means of fixing time within the framework of space (deLatil, ).

Aerial photographs will still remain the most widely used type of   Flight Lines and Index Maps: at the end of a photo mission, the aerial survey contractor plots the location of the first, last, and every fifth photo centre, along with its roll and frame number, on a National Topographic System (NTS) map.

In forest inventory, in Croatia, data acquisition is performed using exclusively terrestrial methods which are costly and time consuming.

With application of remote sensing methods, the need for the field work is reduced which might open the possibility of reducing costs.

• Defoliation • Mortality The operational feasibility of using large-scale aerial photographs to quantify coniferous forest stocking and regeneration density, was assessed over 6 cutovers with a 1, ha total area.

The project involved two stages: one to pre-stratify cutover stocking levels usinggeneral-coverage, colour photos; and the second to sample   aerial vertical photographs of the entire area. The scale of the photography for the reconnaissance survey may range from 5, to feet to one inch, depending on the general character of the topography and the intensity of land use throughout the area of survey.

Remote sensing factors such as sensor reflectance characteristics, perspective, overlap Ground-based surveys are both time consuming and labour intensive.
