Abstract
For too long, law enforcement has ignored the benefits of remote sensing. Though paramilitary in nature, law enforcement agencies have failed to realize the vast potential available from aerial photography, unlike their bretheren in the tactical forces of our Nation's military. The field of remote sensing has seen dramatic technological advances throughout the l980s. These have been largely driven by revolutionary improvements in digital and electronic technology, complemented by the appearance of the personal computer and the computer workstation. However, applications have lagged behind. This provides the impetus for today's talk. While many exotic sensors and sophisticated analysis techniques are avaiable to advanced users, more traditional options go largely ignored. These tried-and-true domains offer predictable and valuable results, do not require extensive training, and are affordable. This is particularly true for aerial photography
