Geospatial Artificial Intelligence (GeoAI) can be defined broadly as the application of artificial intelligence (AI) methods and techniques to geospatial data, processes, models, and applications. The application of these methods to topographic data and phenomena are a focus of research in the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). Specifically, the USGS has investigated and developed applications in terrain feature extraction, hydrographic network extraction, and semantic modeling. This presentation is a documentation of the recent work and current state of this research and an attempt to help define the directions of research and applications in the field of GeoAI, specifically for topographic mapping within the USGS.
