Abstract : The report summarizes basic research program focused upon the electronic quantification and comparison of geographic patterns recorded by various remote sensors, and evaluates their contributions to geographic research and methodology. Eight technical reports cited with abstracts cover five years of experimentation analyzing photographic, radar, and thermal IR images via means of an instrumented system using television scanning, waveform analysis, and computer processing to establish feasibility of machine categorizing of geographic patterns from integrating data in images from one or more sensors.
