ENVI is the software of choice for processing and analysing geo-spatial imagery, combining advanced spectral imaging processing techniques with a modern, user-friendly interface. Whether you use panchromatic, LiDAR, SAR, multispectral or hyperspectral imagery, ENVI has the latest processing and analysis tools to help you extract meaningful information to make better decisions. More information can be found here.
Extend the functionality of ENVI with the ENVI Module Bundle which includes ENVI Feature Extraction, ENVI DEM Extraction, ENVI Atmospheric Correction and ENVI Photogrammetry. More information can be found here.
IDL is the programming language of choice for many Academics and Scientists because it’s easy to learn, easy to use, and requires fewer lines of code than other programming languages, making it easier and faster to go from data to discovery. IDL is the base product of ENVI allowing users to expand its capabilities. More information can be found here
SARscape allows users to easily read, process, and output their SAR data so they can transform hard-to-interpret data into meaningful, contextual information. Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) data is a sophisticated data type that can be used to analyse an area of interest during the day or night, regardless of weather conditions. It is particularly helpful when trying to detect change and study the topography of a specific area. The products available through CHEST are SARscape Basic – InSAR and Interferometric Stacking (PB,SBAS), Windows and Linux only. More information can be found here.
