Abstract:

THE USE OF IMAGERY FOR THE PRESENTATION OF DATA IS BECOMING INCREASINGLY COMMON. INTEGRATING IMAGE DATA WITH GRAPHIC DATA STRUCTURES AND FEATURE INFORMATION IS VERY DIFFICULT USING TRADITIONAL DIGITAL REPRESENTATIONS. SEPARATE IMAGE AND FEATURE INFORMATION DATABASES ARE COMMONLY USED, BUT THE ANALYST IS REQUIRED TO MAINTAIN TWO OR MORE DATABASES AND TO PERFORM INTEGRATION OF THE INFORMATION IN HIS HEAD. MANAGEMENT OF THIS DATA IS ALSO EMERGING AS A SEVERE PROBLEM DUE TO ITS SHEER SIZE. THEREFORE, AN INNOVATIVE TECHNIQUE THAT REPRESENTS GRAYSCALEIMAGES SYMBOLICALLY IN LISP WILL BE USED TO DEVELOP SOFTWARE THAT ALLOWS SMOOTH INTEGRATION OF IMAGE DATA, GRAPHIC DATA STRUCTURES, AND FEATURE INFORMATION. THE USER WILL BE ABLE TO CREATE AND MAINTAIN SUCH AN INTEGRATED DATABASE, TO EMBED FEATURE INFORMATION DIRECTLY INTO IMAGES,TO INTEGRATE GRAPHIC DATA STRUCTURES WITH IMAGES, AND TO QUERY THE IMAGE DATABASE, BASED UPON INFORMATION CONTENT.
