The Radius Common Development Environment

RCDE is a software environment for the development of image understanding algorithms. The application focus of RCDE is on image exploitation where the exploitation tasks are supported by 2D and 3D models of the geographic site being analyzed. An initial prototype for RCDE is SRI’s Cartographic Modeling Environment (CME). This paper reviews the CME design and illustrates the application of CME to site modeling scenarios.
