Scale factor in geological interpretation of the satellite imagery (lineaments example).
A b s t r a c t . The paper presents a comparison of 3 sets of interpretations of 1 classical Landsat MSS image done by 15 interpreters on 3 different scales, varying by a factor of 2 (i.e.1.2M, 1M and 500K). The number, length, and average length of interpreted lineaments strongly depend on the scale of imagery, but not in a simple, linear way. Even directions of interpreted lineaments are to some degree controlled by scale factor, so to obtain a coherent interpretation it is recommended to interpret all image areas on a fixed scale. Interpretations in different scales may be combined into one multi-coverage interpretation.
