Framework toolkit software package SFT Ver 2.0

Summary: The FLIERS software framework and toolkit (FLIERS SFT) software package has been developed as a key part of the work package, and tested extensively by researchers at Southampton and by external users. The FLIERS SFT package incorporates all of the new mapping strategies and algorithms, maintains GIS links via a portable binary image format and via the ability to read ERDAS Imagine files, and provides a complete set of data manipulation tools. The software has been used to investigate mapping strategies and to assess their performance as part of the Southampton work package in FLIERS. The new mapping strategies include a kernel-based area estimator, use of uncertainty from data to result together with texture for remotely sensed image analysis. In addition the software is already used in several external research projects, including ongoing projects at the University of Southampton investigating improving spatial resolution and predicting chlorophyll a from hyperspectral imagery.
