Reconstructing Historic Land Use and Forest Structure Using Aerial Photos and Structure from Motion Analysis

Structure from motion (SfM) analysis and the increasing availability of LiDAR have dramatically simplified the creation of orthophotography and canopy elevation and height models from historic aerial photography. These can then be used to reconstruct land cover, land cover change, patterns of forest disturbance and pre-fire forest structure products at local and regional scales. Archives of high spatial resolution aerial photography (less than 2 m resolution) and global extent (25 million photos from between 1937 and 1945) can be used to extend our current knowledge beyond the 1972 launch of Landsat to include the period before rapid population and economic growth that occurred in the post-WWI period.
