Paper Abstract

Our objective is to obtain a 'living map' in which the traditional elements of a map are not static but can evolve in real time and interact. We therefore developed a system with a graphic interface allowing simulations to be constructed and both natural and man-induced phenomena to be monitored in real time. For this system, we coupled an expert system and an image processing system specialized in Remote Sensing. These two components accept many kind of data (aerial photographs, satellite pictures, maps, digital elevation models, . . .) and interact in real time. The system is built with four levels and uses an object methodology. It works according to the semantic wealth of the handled objects. The hierarchy of handled graphic objects essentially includes the geo- referenced objects and the 'maps' objects. Our prototype uses the object-oriented expert system of Gensym 'G2' and the graphic visualization system developed by Latical, 'Visiter.' An example will be presented.
