ABSTRACT



This paper is an attempt to summarize photogeologic studies done by the Philippine Bureau of Mines during the past 3 years.

As the study is related to geomorphological features, the nature of the Philippine terrain is discussed briefly. Interpretation procedures and photogeologic aspects of the Philippine terrain are described with emphasis on characteristics considered unique and local in nature.

The result of the study pointed well to the applicability of photogeology in tropical areas especially in hastening geological reconnaissance mapping, However, if the technique is to be applied to more detailed geological evaluation to advantage there is a need for more research work on local photogeologic characteristics of various geomorphic features.
