Abstract : The principal objective in this research program is to obtain solutions to fundamental problems in computer vision: particularly those problems that are relevant to the development of an automated capability for interpreting aerial imagery and the production of cartographic products. The author's plan is to advance the state of the art in selected core areas such as stereo compilation, feature extraction, liner delineation, and image matching; also, to develop an expert system control structure which will allow a human operator to communicate with the computer at a problem oriented level, and guide the behavior of the low level interpretation algorithms doing detailed image analysis. Finally, it is planned to use the DARPA/DMA Testbed as a mechanism for transporting both our own and IU community advances, in image interpretation and scene analysis, to DMA, ETL, and other members of the user community.
