This paper presents an overview of the program of research at the CMU Digital Mapping Laboratory in the analysis of remotely sensed imagery and the construction of virtual world databases. We report progress in the areas of digital photogrammetry, automatic and semi-automatic building extraction, road extraction, stereo analysis, multispectral image analysis, and virtual world construction for distributed simulation.
