  • The PC-IMega IM-X image processing and GIS software developed for the JRC European Collaborative Programme for application in environmental management


Within the first phase of the European Collaborative Programme concerning the applications of remote sensing in land use planning, agriculture, forestry and environmental protection, a need was identified for a software system that could integrate remotely sensed data with traditional ground-based cartographic information. Such a system would have to be based on standard microcomputers, requiring no additional hardware. Simplicity of use is particularly important to many potential users of geographical information systems. The PC-1Mega 1M-X software consists of a series of modules which are menu-driven under mouse control. New modules include an elementary terrain modelling package and a simple non-parametric image classifier.
