With the exception of hydrographic, geological, and forestry studies, black-and-white film is the overwhelming choice of photo interpreters as a source of aerial photographic intelligence. For certain specific purposes, however, color film and camouflage detection film are superior soucres of information. Unfamiliarity of the interpreters with color and camouflage detection films exerts more influence on the film choices than the actual values and qualities of the films themselves. Lack of proper viewing equipment, with special regard to stereo, was an equally strong influencing factor on these choices. Recommendations are made that more instruction be made available through the photo interpretation schools and that more and better equipment be made available for their use, all of which should be specifically aimed at special-purpose films.
