Paper Abstract

The design of digital image processing systems for geological applications will be driven by the nature and complexity of the intended use, by the types and quantities of data, and by systems considerations. Image processing will be integrated with geographic information systems (GIS) and data base management systems (DBMS). Dense multiband data sets from radar and multispectral scanners (MSS) will tax memory, bus, and processor architectures. Array processors and dedicated-function chips (VLSI/VHSIC) will allow the routine use of FFT and classification algorithms. As this geoprocessing capability becomes available to a larger segment of the geological community, user friendliness and smooth interaction will become a major concern.
