This paper summarizes a research project that examined the usefulness of Object-oriented Programming (OOP) and the Unified Modelling Language (UML) in producing well-designed software. This leads to cost effective implementation of new automated mapping tools as they emerge. In this project, software for an automated mapping system was designed, implemented, and successfully tested. The system consists of the following subsystems: 1) image acquisition, 2) positioning, 3) image point referencing, 4) spatial object extraction, and, 5) visualization. This paper addresses parts of this work (the first 3 subsystems) in order to demonstrate the flexibility of this approach to software design
