Abstract : The purpose of the FY92/93 effort was to investigate and, where appropriate, develop and deliver software tools to improve the productivity and quality of oceanographic data interpretation. Specifically, this effort comprised three tasks: Task (1) Research and Develop Methods for Improving the Performance of Automated Outlier Detection. Based on algorithms and software developed by SRI under a previous DMA program, several enhancements were carried out. Task (2) Implement, Document, and Deliver the Improved Outlier Detection Algorithms. Additional modifications were made to support generic multibeam format (GMF) data sets. Task (3) Identify and Evaluate More Advanced Oceanographic Data Analysis Tools. A study was made to determine the data automation needs of the oceanographic community, and then compare these needs to data analysis tools already developed for other scientific application areas. Research indicated that a significant body of relevant techniques has indeed been developed for applications such as robotics, image understanding, and various statistical analysis applications.
