Abstract : This paper summarizes our major research activities since the last Image Understanding Workshop in April 1981. Our research goals have been to develop a set of general techniques that can be applied to a number of application tasks. Our focus at the high level has been on symbolic matching of an image to a map or another image. This task is central to many applications, e.g., image based navigation, map-updating, and change detection. Our other research has been in support of this high level goal and has included work on segmentation, texture analysis, object detection and description. We have also worked with Hughes Research Laboratories in defining and developing special purpose hardware for IU tasks.
