Paper Abstract

The paper describes a sequence of algorithms used to perform segmentation of aerial images of natural terrain for the purpose of extracting features pertinent to cartographic applications. Topics include image filtering, labeling, automated editing and refinement of the segmentation within a resolution pyramid. These techniques are considered to be preprocessing activities which will, in general, require some editing by trained cartographers. The objective of this work is to minimize the tedium of feature extraction using algorithms that do not require excessive computational overhead.
