Abstract : The Third Interim Technical Report describes the work completed on the development of ''A Digital Automatic Map Compilation System'' during the period of August 1, 1963 - November 1, 1963. The primary objectives of the project are: 1. To upgrade equipment and computer programs developed under contract DA 44-009 ENG 4724. 2. To develop and evaluate alternate methods of correlating conjugate image data scanned from aerial stereo diapositives. The equipment subsystem has the capability to scan, digitize and store information from a stereo pair, as well as reproduce photographic images from a set of previously stored data. The computer programs are written for use on the IBM 7090 and perform the general functions of resection-orientation, rectification, correlation, elevation computation, and generation of ortho-photo and contour output tapes.
