We present the overall goals of our research program on the aplication of high performance computiong to remote sensing applications, specifically applications in land cover dynamics. This involves developing scalable and portable programs for a variety of image and map data processing applications, eventually integrated with new models for parallel I/O of large scale images and maps. After an overview of the multiblock PARTI run time support system, we explain extensions made to that system to support image processing applications, and then present an example involving multiresolution image processing. Results of running the parallel code on both a TMC CM5 and an Intel Paragon are discussed.
