ACRONYM is a comprehensive domain independent model-based system for vision and manipulation related tasks. Many of its submodules and representations have been described elsewhere. Here the derivation and use of invariants for image feature prediction is described. Predictions of image features and their relations are made from three-dimensional geometric models. Instructions are generated which teli the interpretation algorithms how to make use of image feature measurements to derive three-dimensional size, structural, and spatial constraints on the original three-dimensional models. Some preliminary examples of ACRONYM's interpretations of aerial images are shown.
