Abstract
    This paper reviews the history, present status, and unique capabilities of photography of the earth from space, and presents representative space photographs. Space photography has the following main advantages over conventional aerial photography: wider perspective, potential world-wide coverage, greater speed, and rapid repetition of coverage. In addition, it can partially duplicate aerial photography in producing large scale pictures by the use of long focal-length cameras. Potential applications of space photography based on these characteristics lie in geologic reconnaissance, topographic mapping, oceanography, and several other fields
