    Photo-production of excited mesons in the 1-2 GeV mass range decaying via multi-pion or multi-kaon emission has been investigated at the TJNAF\thanks{This work was supported by the U.S. Department of Energy and The U.S. National Science Foundation.} experiment E01-017 (g6c) in the 4.8βˆ’5.44.8-5.4 GeV photon beam energy range. The main objective of the experiment is to extract resonance parameters of the produced states by way of a Partial Wave Analysis (PWA) technique. In this paper, we will focus on the general characteristics of the data distributions in both the neutral and charged 3-pion final states, i.e. Ο€+Ο€βˆ’Ο€0\pi^{+}\pi^{-}\pi^{0} and Ο€+Ο€+Ο€βˆ’\pi^{+}\pi^{+}\pi^{-}.Comment: 5 pages, 4 figures, CIPANP 2003 proceedings contributio
