Aerial Photographs of the KBS LTER and Environs at the Kellogg Biological Station, Hickory Corners, MI (1938 to 2012)

Aerial photography is considered an important management tool in agriculture. Aerial photography allows researchers to detect spatial variability and understand the causes of the variability such as planter skips, drought stress, weeds and water erosion. In agricultural research it allows researchers to differentiate healthy vegetation from unhealthy and access plant biomass and moisture levels. The photographs are also useful to document trends and changes in the landscape. original data source
