DESCRIPTIONPhotographs in the study of Geography. Ground-Level, Oblique, Vertical aerial, Satellite imagery
- 1. Photographs Geography Skills in Geography
2. Photographs for Geographers
- Geographers use photographs for:
- Describing the natural and human environment
- Compare different places around the world
- Show how places change overtime
- Save many words by when describing features in our world
3. What are these photographs showing us? 4. Types of Photographs Ground-Level Photograph Oblique Photograph Vertical Photograph Satellite Imagery 5. 6. Ground-Level Photographs
- Shows an area as if we were standing and looking at the site.
- Features in the foreground usually appear larger and features further away appear smaller
7. FOREGROUND BACKGROUND 8. What interactions are shown in this Photograph? 9. Oblique Photographs
- Photographs that are taken at a high point taken at an angle.
- These can be taken from aircraft such as a plane or hot air balloon.
- Can also be taken from a cliff looking down at an oblique angle
- Using this angle we are able to discover more of the features in the background
10. Oblique Photos allow the viewer to see more in the background then Ground-level Photos Randwick Racecourse UNSW Eastern Suburbs Pacific Ocean 11. 12. Vertical Photographs
- Usually taken from a specially equipped plane with a camera mounted underneath pointing straight down.
- The maximum tilt of the camera is 3 degrees, If it goes over this angle it will be classified as an oblique photograph
- These photos will show less detail but more area of the environment
13. Check the shading on the baseball stadium, this shows it has been taken at a specific time of the day 14. 15. 16. Satellite Imagery
- A satellite is an object that orbits a planet. These are able to capture larger areas of the Earths Surface.
- Gathering information from satellites is called Remote Sensing.
17. Satellite Imagery shows more land area but less detail 18. Google Earth Satellite Imagery
- Google use satellite imagery to display its maps online:
- Visit Google Earths Website -http:// earth.google.com /
19. Photographs show changes overtime -seasonal 20. Changes in time during the day Gold Coast, QLD Sunrise 21. Gold Coast QLD, Daytime 22. Gold Coast QLD, Night time 23. Changes in different time periods

- 1. Which type of photograph shows the most detail of the features? Why?
- 2. What are the advantages of the oblique photo compared to the Ground photo of Palm Beach
- 3. What are the differences between the ground photo and the vertical photo?
- 4. Describe the interactions between human and physical environments in the oblique photo.
30. Photographs can be used to draw line sketches 31. How to make a line drawing using Photographs 32. 33. 34. Photographs can be used to make Sketch (Land-use) maps 35. 36. Photographs can be used with maps
