Abstract
The Terrain Resources Division of Polar Sea Research Ltd. recently completed an innovative project for the Vehicle Mobility Section (VMS) of Defence Research Establishment Suffield (DRES). Methods for determining trafficability (or terrain mobility) parameters with integrated image analysis and geographic information systems were successfully developed, tested, and put into service. A number of terrain-related, value-added mapping products were generated in hard copy and digital form as well. Our objective was establishing and implementing a strategy for analysis, manipulation, extraction, and storage of terrain-related data in digital form with a Geographic Information System (GIS) and Image Analysis System (IAS) configured for integrated processing. To this end, we created and tested a digital map base, and database of attributes, on part of the Elk Valley in southeastern B.C. TRUNCATED
