Paper Abstract

Too often the process of thermal image analysis is performed without any thought as to why and how we reach certain conclusions regarding image content. A scene is observed, inferertces made, and judgments rendered regarding the identity of objects and background that compose the scene. The purposes of this paper is to formalize the process of thermal image scene analysis using an explicit model consisting of surface and subsurface features that may be observed in any scene. The model is presented along with a comparison of the differences between thermal and visual scene analysis. Conclusions are made with regard to the application of this model to the use of artificial intelligence for automatic recognition of thermal imagery.
