Description : The OSSIM library
Open Source Software Image Map (OSSIM) is a high performance engine for
remote sensing, image processing, geographical information systems and
photogrammetry. It has been actively developed since 1996.
Designed as a series of high performance software libraries, it is
written in C++ employing the latest techniques in object-oriented
The library provides advanced remote sensing, image processing, and
geo-spatial functionality. A quick summary of OSSIM functionality
includes ortho-rectification, precision terrain correction, rigorous
sensor models, very large mosaics, and cross sensor fusions, a wide
range of map projections anddatums, and a large range of commercial
and government data formats. The architecture of the library supports
parallel processing with mpi, a dynamic plugin architecture, and
dynamically connectable objects allowing rapid prototyping of custom
image processing chains.
This package include the core OSSIM library and the basic command-line
tools. Other related package (such as Ossim Planet or Imagelinker)
will come as successive packages.
