Development of an image processing and graphics work station is needed to support
remote sensing research prior to and during the era of NASA's Earth Observing System
(EOS) to assist scientific users of multiple image and collateral data sets. This
work station is defined as an integrated platform for using geographic and collateral
information with imagery and image processing functions. The work station would serve
to integrate the numerous existing software packages for image processing with a
geographic information system via a convenient user interface. The specific innovation
is in the domain of image processing for geometry and visualization of multiple data
sets, areas that require specific attention in the EOS era.
Phase I included a survey of user requirements concerning both functions and performance
combined with performance analyses of the major computationally intensive functions.
The result is a top level design.

Potential Commercial Application: Applications of this research will be by the scientists
using EOS data. It could lead to a widely available, novel, integrated, remote-sensing
work station suited mostly for land studies.
