Land-use maps provide an information source for sound land resource management decisions. If aerial photographs are to provide data for land-use/land-cover mapping, they must be suited for the job, must be interpreted in a professional manner, and the map product must be usable. A routine set of techniques should be developed. The key for a successful project is trained and trainable photo interpreters, organized procedures, written category descriptions, and an accuracy determination. Several illustrations of category definitions and pictorial elements for category recognition are presented.
