Abstract
This paper is written for presentation at the 27th Annual International Technical Symposium and Instrument Display of the International Society for Optical Engineering, held August 21 to 26, 1983, in San Diego, California. The importance of saving of time in the image exploitation element of tactical reconnaissance is discussed, and a device that can be used for the "Automation and recording of the image interpreter's mensuration task for man-made objects" is described. Results of the application of the software are shown, and the critical aspects of accuracy and reliability are addressed for panoramic, oblique, and vertical photo imagery. Testing has demonstrated the ability to reduce task time by an order of magnitude comparable to manual methods. The image exploitation quality can be maintained and mensuration accuracy greatly improved.
