Barrow, H.G.,
Interactive Aids for Cartography and Photo-Interpretation,
SRI AIMemoSemi-Annual, Semi-annual technical report, 12 May 1976 - 12 November 76 (DARPA). Application, Cartography. This report includes several projects such as: cartographic or interpretation aid with map guided interpretation, image calibration. Several examples: boxcar counting (along a track given by the map), road tracing with detection by a road operator and guided tracing, and knowledge representation. BibRef 7605

Research in Interactive Scene Analysis,
SRI AIMemoFinal, December 1976. Final report to NASA. Application, Cartography. Matching, Chamfer. The reports includes several projects such as: verification vision (precise location in image of objects whose approximate location are known in advance) using symbolic and ionic feature matching. Compute analytic camera model and work the map and chamfer matching; IGS (interpretation guided segmentation). BibRef 7612

Tenenbaum, J.M., Fischler, M.A., and Wolf, H.C.,
A Scene-Analysis Approach to Remote Sensing,
SRI AIMemoFinal Report, NASA Project, June 1978. Application, Cartography. Matching, Chamfer. Includes chamfer matching of TN-153 for geometric correspondence. Emphasizes continuous monitoring of predetermined sites and maps to guide feature extraction. Precise symbolic model (map); calibrate camera with known approximate values; map input by hand; sensor correspondence with analytic camera model, 5-7 parameters; determine precise shape of linear feature giving approximate shape (water level example), image 20' pixel, guideline 50' accuracy; road tracing - search from one to next min cost through line operator values; railroad and ships - reduced computation (vs. correlation), transform complex interpretation into given detection, enhance results by associating with geographically localized objects; and using map to locate boundaries to subpixel accuracy.

The SRI Road Expert: Image-to-Database Correspondence,
DARPAN78(163-174). Application, Cartography. Recognize Roads. Given the approximate location of the road, find the road by looking in the restricted area of the image. The procedure requires a lot of information about the scene to perform the match. BibRef
