Paper Abstract

This paper is concerned with the use of a database to support automated photo interpretation. The function of the database is to provide an environment in which to perform photo interpretation utilizing software tools, and represent domain knowledge about the scenes being interpreted. Within the framework of the database, image interpretation systems use knowledge stored as map, terrain, or scene descriptions to provide structural or spatial constraints to guide human and machine processing. We describe one such system under development, MAPS (Map Assisted Photo interpretation System), and give some general rationales for its design and implementation.
