Abstract : This report presents the functional specifications and top-level constructs of the core design of an image understanding (IU) application development environment. The core environment presented in this report provides tools to leverage the development of IU applications and to facilitate transfer of IU and reasoning technology from its origins in research laboratories into IU applications. The core environment provides both a development platform and reusable components including a library of image processing and IU routines and data structures, and an integrated set of high-level reasoning capabilities such as bayesian networks and logic engines. The environment design is an object oriented structure built on the C+ + programming language. The report also addresses system engineering issues in applying the environment to develop workstations specialized for terrain analysis and medical applications. Vision environment, Image Understanding (IU), Computer Vision (CV), object oriented programming.
