Abstract:

NASA PLANS TO PLACE THE LARGE FORMAT CAMERA IN THE SPACE SHUTTLE FOR EARTH SENSING MISSIONS IN 1984. IT IS BELIEVED THAT THE LFC NOT ONLY HAS DIRECT UTILITY IN CARTOGRAPHY, BUT CAN BE USED IN A TRUE MULTISPECTRAL SENSE TO ANSWER UNIQUE CIVIL REQUIREMENTS. FURTHER, BECAUSE OF ITS GEOMETRIC FIDELITY, LFC IMAGERY COULD BE USED AS A MAP BASE FOR OTHER MULTISENSOR, NONIMAGING PRODUCTS. THIS PROJECT WILL: (A) INVESTIGATE THE UTILITY OF SEVERAL FILM REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES INCLUDING REPRODUCTIONS FROM THE INDIVIDUAL EMULSION LAYERS OF THE COLOR AND COLOR IR FILMS, (B) INVESTIGATE THE FEASIBILITY OF COMBINING THE LFC CARTOGRAPHIC AND MULTI-SPECTRAL HARDCOPY PRODUCTS WITH OTHER SENSOR PRODUCTS, AND (C) ANALYZE THE MULTISPECTRAL ASPECTS OF FILM PRODUCTS BY DIGITIZING, COMPUTERIZING, DISPLAYING, SUPERIMPOSING AND ENHANCING THE DIGITAL PRODUCTS TO SUPPORT KNOWN OR ANTICIPATED CIVIL REQUIREMENTS.
