Full text: Transactions of the Symposium on Photo Interpretation

During the closing session of the Symposium on Wednesday, 5 th September 
1962, a number of resolutions were proposed, and after some amendments 
these were passed by the meeting. The final versions were as follows. 
Resolutions of working Groups 
Working Group 1 
1. In accordance with the functions of Working Group 1 of Commission VII, 
a close contact between Commission I and Working Group 1 of Commission 
VII will be stimulated for the benefit of both Commission I and of the 
Working Groups 1-9 of Commission VII. 
2. Commission VII is convinced of the importance of psychological factors 
involved in photo interpretation. Further work in this field is encouraged 
and is to be related to the physical description of image quality which is 
mentioned under 3. 
3. Commission VII wishes to stimulate and interrelate: 
a. the application of modulation-transfer theory and granularity data to 
photo interpretation; 
b. the application of tone reproduction data to photo interpretation. 
4. Image quality, a subject which is assumed to be a point of focus for an 
invited paper in Commission I, will be of equal interest to Commission VII, 
particularly to Working Group 1, and regarded as such. 
5. It is suggested that papers dealing with subjets, as mentioned under 2, 3 
and 4, being of common interest to Commision I and to Working Group 1 
of Commission VII, should be dealt with in combined meetings between 
Commission I and Commission VII, to ensure adequate coordination. 
6. These resolutions are put forward to provide more effective coordination 
between Commission I and Working Groups 1-9 of Commission VII. 
Working Group 2 
It has been agreed that discussion of hydrogeological problems in relation 
to photo interpretation may be a subject of interest for the meeting at Lisbon 
in 1964. 
Working Group 3 
Working Group 3 (Soils) of Commission VII of the International Society 
for Photogrammetry, meeting at Delft, September 1962, agrees that system 
atic interpretation of aerial photographs is an indispensable tool in increasing 
the efficiency of soil surveys in land development; the way in which photo 
interpretation and fieldwork are carried out and combined should, however,
