How to Se/ect by Point






(1) Go to map search


I~NI3U


Aerial Piography: Florida Home


From the Aerials Photography: Florida homepage click on the Map Search tab

to the top of the screen.


(2) Identify a town or area

On the Goog/e map that appears, look

for the location in Florida that you are

searching for. In the example given

here, we'll be searching for the Ben .

Hill Griffin Stadium at the University of

Florida. We know that the university is

in Gainesville, so start by double-clicking on the little dot next to Gainesvil/e

on the map.


(3) Hone in on your target



You should continue to double-click on

Gainesville until the city fills the map.

Watch the bar on the left-hand side of

the map: it shows how far you have

zoomed in. You can use the plus or minus arrows to zoom in or out on the

map.


(4) At the city level





It is important to read the map at

each stage. At this point, you need to

identify the location of the university

in Gainesville, as that is where the

stadium is located. Again, double-click

on that area of the map.


(5) Find the stadium





Find the stadium on the map and map sure it

is centered by double-clicking on it. Next,

click the box that reads Select a point on

the map. Once you do so, it will be

highlighted in yellow. Now click once on the

stadium.

(6) Search


Once you have selected the point on

the map, simply click Search above the

map to bring up a list of aerial

photographs relating to that location.


(7) Select a flight





You will now see a list of flights covering

the location. For the Ben Hill Griffin

Stadium there are seven flights. The year

in which the flight took place is indicated

beside the flight number. In this instance,

we're going to access Flight 4F (1949)

by clicking on the hyperlink to the right

of the map.

(8) Select a "tile"





A tile is simply the name given to each

of a series of photos taken in a single

flight. In the map on the right, two

green tiles are visible. These tiles will

show the Ben Hill Griffin Stadium. (The

blue tiles also represent photos, but will not show the stadium.)

tile. In this example, we chose Tile 183.


(9) Manipulating the image


The map that appears covers most of the west
Gainesville, FL area. Use the Thumbnail feature to
center your image on the stadium (the dot gives a
rough indication of its location). Left click on the
Thumbnail to recenter the image.
You can also zoom in on the map using the + and -

0 1111 buttons.

(10) Reaching the stadium


Once you've zoomed in on
your map, take a few
moments to "read" the image
in front of you. Can you spot
the stadium? Being able to
read aerial images is a skill
that is learned. Have patience
and search carefully for the
feature you are investigating.
