This report describes the work performed during the first six months of our project on Image Understanding. The central scientific goal of the research program is to investigate and develop ways in which diverse sources of knowledge may be brought to bear on the problem of interpreting images. The research is focused on the specific problems entailed in interpreting aerial photographs for cartographic or intelligence purposes, with a view to the eventual development of a collaborative aid to the cartographer or photo interpreter. A key concept is the use of a generalized digital map to guide the process of image interpretation. (Author)
