Abstract:

The authors principal objective in this research program has been to obtain solutions to fundamental problems in computer vision that have broad military relevance, particularly in the areas of cartography and photo interpretation. Now-completed research has been directed towards developing automated techniques for stereo-compilation, delineation of linear features, scene partitioning, image matching, and image to database correspondence. In addition to their own research, the authors have designed and implemented an integrated testbed system that incorporates results of research produced throughout the Image Understanding community. This system provides a coherent framework for demonstration and evaluation of the accomplishments of DARPAs Image Understanding program, thereby facilitating transfer of this technology to appropriate military organizations.
