AERIAL CELESTIAL POSITIONING OF GROUND CONTROL POINTS FOR ARCTIC MAPPING

Abstract: The advent of long-range reconnaissance aircraft has simplified the resolution of difficulties of mapping and charting the Arctic and magnetic polar areas to a point of accomplishment. That is to say, USAF Reconnaissance crews have been photographing areas in the far north with a high degree of success. The inaccessability of the arctic and mag netic polar areas ,delayed the plotting of the accumulated photo coverage for some time. For all practical purposes, the ground surveyed control points were far too few and improperly spaced. An entirely new concept of mapping control was the only panacea.
