An automated technique for measuring built-up urban areas from map graphics through analog image processing
Murphy, Lawrence P.; Abbe, William W.
Research noteAbstract: This research report describes a production application using experimental analog (video) image processing equipment for measuring areas (Km2) depicted on graphic map input as built-up urban areas. The note concludes that state-of-the-art analog image processing components can be configured and used to measure built-up areas in one- twelfth of the time required by conventional manual means.
