--With an increased numbers of airborne digital sensor devices being procured by mapping agencies, these organisations are now faced with problems of processing the increased volumes of digital data being sourced by these devices. These data include multi-spectral multi-band imagery as well as digital terrain data. Processing problems range from data capture and cataloging through to image processing and product generation. Utilising these digital data in a timely fashion is a key requirement for providing return on investment to those organisations. Automating feature extraction tasks to reduce the time taken to process these data for mapping purposes is also a challenge for these organisations. This paper summarises recent work by Australia researchers to improve the feature detection capabilities of current image processing techniques for spatial feature detection.
