Abstract : The report describes the work done in the area of digital stereo mapping under contract with the United States Army Engineer Topographic Laboratories. The philosophy and techniques developed by the Digital Image Systems Division of Control Data Corporation in the past have been applied to the design and implementation of a software system to be used in the development of algorithms that relate to the problem of digital stereo matching. The system is designed as a research tool with the basic characteristics of flexibility and simplicity incorporated into a block processing environment. The major tasks of data handling and stereo image matching are logically separate from one another and are further subdivided into versatile functional components that are easily interchangeable as new algorithms are developed.
