Paper Abstract

In a previous paper,1 an approach to automatic classification of terrain types in aerial photographs was described. Experiments verifying the approach were conducted on a computer-controlled cathode ray tube scanner system called the Natural Image Computer (NIC). The system simulated in serial fashion concepts of parallel local image shape extraction and decision derived from prior optical experiments.2,3 Classification experiments were performed on terrain samples of orchards, woods, lakes, oil tank farms, and railroad yards on 1:50,000 scale imagery, with a resolution corresponding to four feet on the ground.
