College: How to analyze/interpret aerial landscape photos?

Posted in the Archaeology Forum

I am currently taking a class regarding Chinese landscape. Apparently the teacher thinks we all know how to read the landscapes already (I am taking this as a GE, and it is my first archaeology class).

How can I go about interpreting aerial photos? How can I figure out what are the mountains, water ways, aquaducts, rivers, plains, etc.? I need to figure this out because we have a test coming up soon. We will be using both color and CORONA photographs.

Can anyone recommend me a good site that teaches you how to train your eyes to see these things? To me, everything looks the same!
