Image understanding algorithms involve different parallel architectures. Among them, there is MIMD computers for the purpose of executing complex algorithms. Unfortunately, programming such computers is difficult. A high-level MIMD programming tool based on the Linda programming paradigm is presented which can be used to implement parallel image understanding algorithms easily and efficiently. We describe the implementation of this software on a message passing multicomputer. The overhead of the primitives and the experiences with two well known problems are presented for providing an idea of the practicability of the system.<>
