Opticks Demo for Ohio View Presentation Transcript

  • 1. Opticks Demo for OhioView
    5 November 2010
  • 2. What is Opticks?
    • Perform Image and Video Analysis
    • 3. Spectral, Synthetic Aperture Radar, Thermal
    • 4. Similar to the following commercial tools:
    • 5. SOCET GXP, IMAGINE, RemoteView, ENVI
    • 6. Extendable with plug-ins:
    • 7. Add import/export support for new file formats
    • 8. Implement new data processing algorithms
    • 9. Add new windows, mouse modes, toolbars, keyboard shortcuts
    • 10. Most of the application is implemented as extensions using our public extension API
  • Open-Sourcing Opticks
    Originally developed by Ball Aerospace & Technologies Corp. (BATC) for the US Air Force (USAF) for hyperspectral analysis starting in Spring 2000.
    Spelling of Opticks was chosen to match the title of Isaac Newton’s book
    BATC and USAF started working jointly in 2006 to release the core application as open-source. Specifically LGPL v2.1.
    Opticks was released as open-source in December 2007 and both BATC and USAF continue to support this effort.
    Since then, the following extensions have been open-sourced by BATC and USAF:
    IDL Scripting
    Python Scripting
    Spectral Processing
  • 11. University Applications
    Nathan Jennings is using Opticks as part of the lab for GEOG 342 (Introduction to Remote Sensing and Digital Image Processing) at American River College in Sacramento
    He ported some of his pre-existing radar processing code into an Opticks extension and has published the extension to the http://opticks.org/ website.
    Opticks participated in Google Summer of Code 2010
    Two university students wrote extensions to Opticks over the 10 week summer of code period and published the capability to the http://opticks.org/ website.
    The Python Scripting extension allows for easy algorithm development and prototyping
    NumPy bring array processing capabilities similar to Matlab, IDL to Python
    Opticks, Python, Python Scripting extension for Opticks and NumPy are free and open-source
    Students can work at home or in lab
  • 12. Collaboration
    User mailing list
    Developer mailing list
    Real-time chat
    Extensions can be developed and shared on http://opticks.org/
    Source code and documentation contributions welcome
