GIS & RS Tools

Below you can find brief information and links to the software and systems that our trainings and seminars are focusing in.

  1. Quantum GIS (QGIS)
    QGIS is a user friendly Open Source Geographic Information System (GIS) licensed under the GNU General Public License. It runs on Linux, Unix, Mac OSX, Windows and Android and supports numerous vector, raster, and database formats and functionalities.
    QGIS provides a continously growing number of capabilities provided by core functions and plugins. You can visualize, manage, edit, analyse data, and compose printable maps.

  2. Manifold System GIS
    Manifold System Release 8 delivers the world's most powerful, most full-featured and most modern Geographic Information System (GIS) package as a fully-integrated application at one low price. By using modern software technology and leveraging mainstream Microsoft standards, Manifold System can deliver more capabilities, more power, greater quality and greater ease of use than old-fashioned GIS products.
    Manifold GIS is a combination of mapping, CAD, DBMS and image processing. The hallmark of GIS is the power of using a visual interface to view, grab, analyze, manipulate and transform data that would not be comprehensible in classic row and column DBMS text presentations.
    Τhe unique power of Manifold comes from the visual computing it makes possible with databases ranging from personal data to the largest, most sophisticated, enterprise-class databases.

  4. eCognition Developer
    eCognition Developer can be applied for all common remote sensing tasks such as vegetation mapping, feature extraction, change detection and object recognition. The object-based approach facilitates analysis of all common data sources, such as medium to high resolution satellite data, high to very high resolution aerial photography, lidar, radar and even hyperspectral data.
    eCognition Developer offers a comprehensive collection of algorithms tailored to the different aspects of image analysis. The user can choose from a variety of segmentation algorithms such as multiresolution segmentation, quad tree or chessboard. The scope of classification algorithms range from sample-based nearest neighbor, fuzzy logic membership function or specialized context-driven analysis. Layer operation algorithms allow pixel based filters such as slope, aspect, edge extraction or user defined layer arithmetics to be applied.
