Abstract : This final technical report describes the overall research progress during a three year period. In July 1987, the Digital Mapping Laboratory at Carnegie Mellon University began work with the U.S. Army Topographic Engineering Center (TEC)* to explore the detailed analysis of aerial imagery with particular emphasis on builtup areas containing large numbers of complex man-made structures. During the past three years research was done in several important areas including scene registration, stereo analysis, shadow analysis, and building detection. Each of these areas addresses an important set of issues toward the development of automated tools for cartographic feature extraction. Computer Vision, Automated Cartography, Digital Mapping.
