InterIMAGE logo The InterIMAGE Project is an International Scientific Cooperation Project leaded by the Pontifical Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro (PUC-Rio) and the Brazilian National Institute for Space Research (INPE).

The InterIMAGE system is a knowledge based framework for Automatic Image Interpretation. InterIMAGE is an extension of an earlier project called GeoAIDA developed by the Institut für Informationsverarbeitung - Leibniz Universität Hannover. The interpretation strategy implemented by the system is based on a knowledge model defined by the user, structured as a semantic network. The nodes of the network represent concepts, classes of image objects expected to be found in a scene. Specialized image processing operators (external from the system's core) can be attached to the system, which controls their execution. The instances of the concepts found by the operators are then judged by the system, based on rules defined by the user.

The InteImage system provides the means for the construction of automatic image interpretation applications through the structure of knowledge used by the human specialist.

Some functionalities already provided by the system are:

  • Extraction of objects/patterns in images and calculation of spectral, geometric, topological and texture properties;
  • Modeling of explicit knowledge, based on specialist experience for image interpretation through fuzzy rules, fuzzy sets and a semantic net; and
  • Processing and visualization of the results for the image interpretation.
