Abstract
TECHNOLOGY INTERNATIONAL INCORPORATED (TII) PROPOSES THE USE OF FRACTALS GEOMETRY FOR SMOOTHING SPATIALLY ORIENTED DATA SETS OVER THE PARAMETER SPACE. THE IMPLEMENTATION ALGORITHM WOULD BE CAPABLE OF SPATIAL AUTO-CORRELATION AMONG RANDOM TIME SAMPLES DISTRIBUTED OVER A GIVEN GEOGRAPHICAL LOCATION. ITERATION METHODS WILL BE EMPLOYED TO DEVELOP A GRAPHICAL COMPUTER CODE WHICH CAN BE EMPLOYED BY NASA-SSC AS A STATISTICS TOOL FOR USE IN ANALYSIS OF SPATIAL PATTERNS AND SPATIAL INTERACTION PROCESSES. DATA SETS WOULD INVOLVE REMOTELY SENSED DATA AND ANCILLARY MAPS, ETC. THE R/R&D OBJECTIVES OF PHASE I OF THE PROPOSED PROGRAM ARE THE EXPLORATION OF THE USE OF FRACTALS ITERATIVERECURSIVE ALGORITHM IN SMOOTHING OVER THE PARAMETER SPACE AND IN IMAGE RESTORATION AND RECONSTRUCTION; AND DEVELOPMENT OF THE LOGIC FOR THE FRACTALS ALGORITHM APPROPRIATE FOR STATISTICS OF SPATIAL PATTERNS AND SPATIAL INTERACTION PROCESSES.
