Assisted interpretation of infrastructure facilities from aerial imagery
The evaluation of a country's critical infrastructure requires a detailed analysis of facilities such as airfields, harbors, communication lines and heavy industry. To improve the interpretation process, an interactive support system for the interpretation of infrastructure facilities from aerial imagery is developed. The aim is to facilitate the training phase for beginners, increase the flexibility in the assignment of interpreters and improve the overall quality of the interpretation. An analysis of the approach chosen by professional interpreters has been the basis to identify critical steps which can be effectively supported by a software system. To evaluate the benefit of the system, an experimental setup is proposed.
