Paper Abstract

This paper presents a method for converting Landsat imagery of natural rural scenes to horizontal viewing perspectives in a digital image processing system. The technique uses digital terrain images for a three-dimensional representation of the scene. Full color pixel-by-pixel (as opposed to skeletal or graphical) images are synthesized, and hidden pixels are eliminated. A sequence of synthesized images of the Colorado River basin is shown. Examples of panoramic and orthographic projections are also shown. An appendix presents a method for converting a contour map into a digital terrain map in raster format.
