This study presents a two-phase approach to the generation and maintenance of a polygonal cartographic database to be used with autonomous vehicle route planning. The database is non-interactively generated from available U.S. Geological Survey topographical maps, and interactively maintained. The focus of this research centers on the non-interactive generation of the polygonal database through heuristic processing of digital images and subsequent region growing.
