Infrared

 

Flight specifications for the NHAP program require that all photographs meet certain standards regardless of the geographic area involved. The sun angle is thirty percent or higher to reduce potential shadow effects on the ground. Cloud cover must be absent, and atmospheric haze must be minimal. Even seasonal factors such as the presence of snow on the ground, flooding, or the amount of foliage are considered prior to accepting the photography. The center point of each photograph must also fall within a 1,000 foot radius of a pre-determined position within the north-south flight lines. Camera tilt shall not exceed four degrees, nor average more than two degrees, in any ten mile section of a flight, nor average more than one degree for the entire flight contract.

NHAP photography was acquired from an altitude of 40,000 feet. Two different camera systems were used to acquire simultaneous coverage at two different scales. A 6-inch focal length lens acquired black-and-white (B/W) film at an approximate scale of 1:80,000. B/W photos cover a ground area of 11 x 11 miles. An 8.25-inch lens acquired color-infrared (CIR) film at an approximate scale of 1:58,000. CIR photos cover a ground area of 8 x 8 miles.

The following print sizes and scales are available:

Film Type Print Size Enlargement Scale 1" equals
