Description: Contract report
Abstract: T he problem of automatically extracting map symbology from source imagery is studied. It is concluded that a great deal of geographic knowledge used by humans, who currently perform this extraction function, must be made available to machines before the function can he automated. Several geographic knowledge sources are discussed and an attempt is made to define paradigms under which knowledge can be encoded and used in the computer.
