The parallax on ERTS and Skylab images is suffi­ciently large for stereoscopic examination by human interpreters. The ability to view the images stereo­scopically reduces, the signal-to-noise ratio. The geo­metry of ERTS and Skylab images reveals that both camera and scanner systems provide parallax. Dy using stereoscopic examination, ground locations are found more rapidly than when the 'apparent' relief suggested solely by tonal patterns is examined mono­cularly. The resultant relationships observed in this manner between land forms differences make interpretation of vegetation and geomorpho­logy easier.
