This item was taken from the IEEE Conference ' Remote sensing education with MicroMSI ' ""Know the Earth... Show the Way"", in support of its motto, the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) promotes geospatial intelligence awareness and education in the academic community. As a public education initiative, NGA is offering MicroMSI (Microcomputer Multi-Spectral Imagery), a public-domain remote sensing program to the public through the NGA web site at MicroMSI was developed at the Geospatial Sciences Lab of the Department of Geography and Environmental Engineering at the United States Military Academy, partially under a research grant from the National Imagery and Mapping Agency (NGA predecessor). MicroMSI is a remote sensing imagery analysis program designed for use in introductory courses in remote sensing. Since MicroMSI is a public-domain program, it may be freely redistributed for non-commercial purposes. The program has the following capabilities: 1. Multiple display of multi-spectral imagery including: gray-level, multiband (pseudo-color and derived panchromatic), band-ratioed, band-differenced, thermal, NDVL supervised classification (three algorithms), unsupervised classification, spectral classification, stereo anaglyph and principal component analysis. 2. Image data importing/indexing ""wizard"" that simplifies the process of accessing new imagery. MicroMSI supports band sequential, BIL and BSQ file in many common commercial image formats. Up to 256 bands per image allows access to hyperspectral data. 3. Geo-registration and geo-rectification of images. 4. Image annotation with text, grids, north arrow. 5. Extensive context-sensitive help file which serves as a reference to MicroMSI features and also provides a multi-spectral image processing tutorial as student exercises. 6. Full support of any Windows output device (e.g., color printers) at any size up to E-size.
