This paper describes image understanding research at SRI International in the area of computer assisted extraction of cartographic features. Several techniques that are well-suited to semi-automated photo-interpretation are described. These algorithms and others have been implemented within the framework of the Cartographic Modeling Environment, a highly capable, interactive programming environment that has been designed to facilitate the construction of image understanding systems.
