Abstract : Photo interpretation is a widely accepted means of using remotely sensed data (imagery) for the purpose of identifying, measuring, and evaluating the significance of features on the Earth's surface. This report describes the Computer Assisted Photo Interpretation Research (CAPIR) facility assembled at the U.S. Army Engineer Topographic Laboratories and discusses the implementation and applications of such a system in the Corps of Engineers' Civil Works Program. Following an exposition on the system, a demonstration project is described. In this demonstration, the CAPIR system was applied to a flood damage potential study. The particular applications were structural mapping and land use interpretation. A Civil Works User Scenario is also included in this report.
