With the Photo Interpretation study we can locate or examine an object on the aerial photographs that contain it. In fact, when the examination is done on stereo pairs of aerial photographs where we see stereoscopically (three-dimensionally) we can draw even more useful conclusions, such as the existence of buildings, roads, fences, dry stone, the type of vegetation and crops, the existence of trees and , stream limits, etc.
The observation in stereo pairs is much better than the monoscopic one because precisely the terrain, the altitude differences, the height of the constructions of the objects and the vegetation but also the recognition of their species can be recognized. In fact, when we compare aerial photographs from different dates, we can see the evolution over time.
The probative value of aerial photographs is great because they are Public Documents with a specific date and time of taking. The photo-interpretation study can be particularly useful for Objections in the National Land Registry, in the forest maps under suspension as well as for documentation regarding the year of construction of the arbitrary buildings.
Aerial photographs of Greece exist in various dates starting from 1945 and 1960 where the country was completely covered by the Army Geographical Service. Full coverage was also made in various dates after 1970 and about every decade. Also the OK.X.E. has a file with downloads for the period from 1970 until today.

The Photo Interpretation Study includes:
• Technical report where all aspects of the case are described in detail with a detailed description of the findings of each shot for all data relating to the property with reference to the relevant legislation to prove the findings in this case.
• Enlarged aerial photographs from the originals used, where elements of the current situation can be passed over them in order to make a comparison and easier to draw conclusions.
