Abstract: The importance of navigation to precision aerial photography is a source of considerable misconception. This misconception arises because of the general feeling that the only important problem in aerial photography is the degree of camera excellence. While it is true that camera performance is of outmost importance, it is equally true that a photograph snapped at the wrong time may be not only utterly useless but also expensive. The role of navigation in precision aerial photography is the orientation of the aircraft in accordance with a predetermined plan.
