3DIUS is a programming environment that makes it easy to build image understanding systems, much as a high-level programming language facilitates implementation of algorithms. Its use can greatly reduce the time required to program new applications by eliminating the need to recreate commonly used functionality, such as high-speed image access and display, coordinate transformation, and mouse interaction with 3D objects. The powerful user interface of 3DIUS allows a smooth transition from human-guided image feature extraction to totally automated image understanding systems.
Cartography: 3DIUS provides the facilities necessary for image registration, cartographic feature extraction, orthophoto production, and special-purpose map generation.
