Paper Abstract

The rapid increase in the volume of digital imagery data has created the need for automated image analysis systems. The following paper suggests the design of such a system, and it also discusses the role of the imagery analyst in the development and maintenance of the system. The use of digital imagery, charting, and geodesy (MC&G) data is combined with the digital imagery data to aid in change detection tasks. The imagery analyst remains the key component in an automated system, but is relieved from performing repetitive, often trivial tasks that can best be performed by the system.
