Considerations in developing geographic informations systems based on low-cost digital image processing
Author and Affiliation:
Henderson, F. M.(State Univ. of New York, Albany, NY, United States)
Dobson, M. W.(State Univ. of New York, Albany, NY, United States)
Abstract: The potential of digital image processing systems costing $20,000 or less for geographic information systems is assessed with the emphasis on the volume of data to be handled, the commercial hardware systems available, and the basic software for: (1) data entry, conversion and digitization; (2) georeferencing and geometric correction; (3) data structuring; (4) editing and updating; (5) analysis and retrieval; (6) output drivers; and (7) data management. Costs must also be considered as tangible and intangible factors.
