There is overwhelming evidence for the fact that image analysis is rapidly moving into the digital domain. Computer workstations serve to analyze pixel arrays, thereby providing the user with automation opportunities otherwise not available. Sensing of visible light imagery has made great strides into the digital arena as well. However, for the time being high resolution metric cameras and film will remain very important means of imaging the earth's surface, the environment and objects in industrial settings for non-real time applications. The problem therefore exists to provide capabilities of using film imagery but to submit this to digital analysis. We are discussing a solution to this need in the form of a system for on-line digitization of film and interactive analysis of the digitized pixel arrays. The result is a combination of state-of-the-art film imaging with state-of-the-art softcopy image analysis. Key Words: Photogrammetry, reconnaissance imaging, photography, softcopy imagery, computer-based photo-interpretation.
