In this lesson you will learn to describe the basic plotting components, peculiarities, and
methods of IR imagery.
Describe the components, peculiarities, and methods required to plot IR
You will be given access to extracts from STP-34-96D1-SM and TC 34-
IR imagery plotting will be IAW STP-34-96D1-SM, and TC 34-55.
The material contained in this lesson was derived from the following
An imagery plot is a record of the ground area covered by an airborne sensor. The plot may
be prepared directly onto a map or on a transparent overlay keyed to a map. Plots are
essential to identify, locate, and control aerial imagery. Plotting IR is very similar to plotting
conventional vertical photography with a few differences.
PART A: BASIC PLOTTING COMPONENTS AND PECULIARITIES
1. Basic plotting components. In preparing the plot the IA must keep in mind time
limitations, the use to be made of the plot, and local SOP. In order for an overlay to be read
and understood by others, it must be prepared IAW recognized standards of overlay
Security classification is located at top and bottom center of the overlay paper in
larger than any other lettering and at the bottom of the title block.
