Abstract : The report summarizes the effort expended for the design, implementation, and testing of an interactive graphics testbed to be used in the evaluation of graphics applications for photo interpretation. The system was configured using a mini-computer, digital TV graphics system, TV camera videa system, bulk storage, and various operator interactive devices. By using the system an operator can generate a graphic representation of critical data from photography, using the actual photograph, as viewed by the TV camera as a background. These graphic overlays can be stored, combined with text into a report, recalled later for update, or output for hardcopy. The testbed concept allows for collection of critical functional and economic data prior to committing to a full operational system. The project was joint effort involving RADC (IS), ARPA and the Defense Intelligence Agency. The report has been written in sufficient detail to serve as both an operators manual and a report on progress in developing a graphics testbed system for DIA. (Author)
