SPECIM Announces the Launch of CaliGeoPRO Software for High Speed Pre-Processing of Hyperspectral Data

21 April 2011 – SPECIM, Spectral Imaging, Ltd., the renowned manufacturer of AISA Airborne Hyperspectral Systems, announces the release of CaliGeoPRO, a software for AISA sensor data pre-processing. The software features high-speed tools for  radiometric processing and georeferencing of hyperspectral remote sensing data. SPECIM CaliGeoPRO also adds several important functionalities to the basic CaliGeo software, including interface for guided, easy-to-use work flow through the data processing chain, visual diagnostics tools, automated batch processing for large data sets, and real-time preview of the final image while data-processing is still in progress.

SPECIM has upgraded its CaliGeo software to CaliGeoPRO to adapt to the market needs for high capacity pre-processing of hyperspectral data. This tool has been taken to the level where AISA data from a complete flight campaign can be pre-processed in just a few hours instead of several days. CaliGeoPRO produces basic georectification at least 15 times faster than the standard CaliGeo software, and georectification using Digital Terrain Model (DTM) can be completed up-to 50 times faster than previously.

“With the new CaliGeoPRO we are serving our most demanding customer segments by providing a high-speed pre-processing tool. They can now save time and money and concentrate in the actual production” states Petri Nygrén, Product Manager of the SPECIM AISA Airborne Hyperspectral Systems. “GaliGeoPRO is an important step towards real time data processing, our ultimate goal.”

CaliGeoPRO processing can be conducted either in an interactive mode or in automated batch processing for large data sets. Real time preview can be followed while data-processing is in progress, for both a single flight line and batch processing. With a clear user interface with step-by-step instructions to go through the data processing chain, CaliGeoPRO allows to review and validate data quality with the possibility to modify the processing parameters to achieve an optimal result.

CaliGeoPRO exploits efficiently resources of multiprocessor platforms and 64bit operating systems and runs smoothly on any regular office PC having 32bit or 64bit Windows operating system with ENVI 4.7 or newer.

CaliGeoPRO will be available in June 2011.
