Abstract:

This research report describes a production application using experimental analog video image processing equipment for measuring areas Kilometers squared depicted on graphic map input as built-up urban areas. The note concludes that state-of-the-art analog image processing components can be configured and used to measure built-up areas in one-twelfth of the time required by conventional manual means.
