Abstract

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.
