Abstract:

This project, which was scheduled to terminate in November 2001, was extended to January 2003 to allow more time for technology transfer. The last report covered the period from the beginning of the project through December 2001. It provided documentation of the following all papers written to that date 46, number of personnel supported 36, number of degrees awarded 12 PhD and 10 Masters, and the various awards and recognitions received by the team. It gave concise summaries of 15 example research results that deal with a wide range of basic research from innovative mathematical modeling to the extraction of complex buildings, road grids, and cars, to effective visualization. The most significant accomplishment is the fact that the team of members from diverse research areas functioned as an integrated entity that resulted in accelerated progress. This report gives information subsequent to the last report, including papers, degrees, and particularly technology transfer.
