Abstract:

An annotated bibliography was prepared, consisting of reports, papers, articles, proceedings, and significant collections dealing with Automatic Feature Extraction from continuous tone imagery, in order to meet the research and operational needs of workers responsible for topographic mapping and preparation of military geographic information MGI. A listing of forty-two key words was compiled for the bibliographic search, which was limited to unclassified work conducted in the United States and abroad from 1970 to the present. Twenty-one data bases were searched, as well as other pertinent bibliographic references. Some 12,000 to 15,000 abstracts were obtained, examined, and culled. The abstracts were supplied by the authors or by data base editors some abstracts were edited by project personnel for clarity or to achieve a manageable text length. The bibliographic entries are categorized in a separate index according to the specific techniques and methods being reported. The rationale for the categorization is explained. A personal author index is supplied. Collections are excluded from the author and category indexes, since the scope of this material does not lend itself to categorization. Author
