Don’s lifelong exploration of the practical engineering applications of aerial photography – a discipline that became known as aerial photographic interpretation and, more recently, remote sensing – placed him as the foremost pioneer in this field. Among his distinguished colleagues were Professors Ta Liang and Arthur J. McNair. Don Belcher distinguished himself as an educator, scholar, innovator, and consultant.
Presenter, Raymond A. Kreig is the President of RA Kreig & Associates of Anchorage, Alaska. Ray was closely associated with Don Belcher as a teaching assistant.
