Paper Abstract

Previous work in automatic photointerpretation has performed feature extraction and identification as one-pass sequential processes, at a single global level of detail. However, human photointerpreters perform these actions simultaneously while focusing on local areas of interest or uncertainty, at an appropriate level of detail. This paper describes our system for a piece-wise approximation to human-like photointerpretation, called Multi-Pass Multi-Resolution (MPR) image interpretation. MPR uses multiple passes to approximate simultaneity, and multiple resolutions together with recursive segmentation to achieve varying levels of local detail.
