This photo of Carberry and surrounding area illustrates the application of the photo interpretation criteria—tone, texture, shape, and location—to the identification of surface features. Several fields have a uniform dark-grey tone 1 characteristic of grain crops at an early growth stage while they are still green. The uniformity of tone results in a smooth texture 2. Northwest of town, several fields show gradations from very light tone 3 to medium-grey tone 4. These fields are developed on an irregular sandy surface; the light-toned areas are higher and drier than the dark-toned areas. Also west of Carberry are dark-toned areas with a rough texture 5; these are areas of deciduous woodland. On the southwestern edge of town is the characteristic oval shape 6 of a racetrack. Finally north of town are two squared areas 7, one divided into quarters by tree belts 8. This is a typical arrangement for cemeteries, an identification supported by the location, a half-mile (0.8 km) out of town. A railway line 9 runs south of town with a branch leading off to the north 10. An elevator 11 identified by its distinctive shadow shape is located on this line.
