 Product description and functionalities
– Centaurus is the software product for automation of a wide range of
image processing problems solving, interpretation of remote
sensing data, computer vision, digitizing of drawings and mapping.
 Raster image processing
– Numerous number of image filters: standard (linear, monadic, morphological,
etc.) and advanced (focus restoration, cross-correlation, statistical, customized,
etc., etc., etc.)
– Number of image segmentation tools (Isodata, statistical, fuzzy,…)
– Orthogonal transforms (wavelet, Fourier,…)
– Measurement tools (histogram and statistical analysis, Fourier analysis, profiler)
– Raster editor for drawing
 Vector image processing
– Extra-fast automatic vectoring and skeletonization (finding of a center line)
– Advanced operations with vector object (algebraic and morphological tools,
homogenization, smoothing, constrain, reducing, convex extension, deleting of
multiconnections, etc., etc., etc.)
– Advanced measurement functions (area, length, perimeter, circularity,
eccentricity, convexity, sinuosity, angles, topological charges, positions, statistical,
etc., etc., etc.)
– Vector editor for drawing
 Data formats, import and export
– Raster formats: BMP, TIFF, PCX, RAW, HDF, DEM,…
– Vector formats: WMF/EMF, MapInfo, ArcView, ArcCad and other GIS and CAD
systems…
– Standard database formats for attributive parameters
– Import from scanners, photo cameras
– Preview of image transforms, the tools for preprint, marking of printed pages,
optimization of print area placing for single and tiled pages
– Number of supported formats continuously increases
 Georeferencing, geometric transformation and registration
 Built-in support of heterogeneous projects (say, data exchange
with external software, for example, Excel)
 Open COM architecture (developer kit exists)
 Integrated VBA as programming and automation tool
 Companies and institutions who use airspace imaging
processing (for cadastre, agriculture, forestry, geology,
ecology, intelligence, etc. )
 Mapping companies and institutions
 Scientists: who need to investigate and measure images and
to introduce automation in it; who develops new image
processing tools.
 Designers, architects, electric and electronic engineers who
need to save time for digitizing of drawings or layout
 Industrial producers who need to introduce automation for
nondestructive check, technical vision, etc.
 Airspace Imaging: remote sensing, various processing of
Earth observation data, intelligence…
 GIS and Mapping
 Digitizing, processing and archiving of technical, electrical
and architectural drawings
 Microscopy
 Technical vision (tracking, segmentation, etc.)
 Nondestructive check
 Others: CAD/CAM, publishing, cadastre, agriculture,
forestry, geology, ecology, biomedicine, astronomy, etc.
(various scientific, industrial and military applications)
 Telecommunication
 Centaurus is modular system and system integration can be
putted into effect depending on particular problems to be
solved by the particular customer.
 Price depends on software configuration: standard Raster
and/or Vector, Registration, OLE, Automation modules. Can
be completed with additional plug-ins and special modules.
 Centaurus currently does not include yet support of great
number of formats as, for example, ERDAS Imagine as well as
number of other features. Nevertheless, we can add all it due
to open architecture.
 Our vectoring and computer geometry is faster and more
advanced then, probably, any others. Nevertheless, Centaurus
is not just a program for vectoring, like, for example,
EasyTrace – we are much more powerful.
 Centaurus can be used not only for vectoring and mapping or
for satellite image processing – we can use it just for any
brunch, such as medical and bio imaging, image analysis, etc.
• Technologies/platforms used
– Operation system – MS Windows 4.0, 32 bit architecture.
– Minimum hardware requirements – P-II–400, 128 MB RAM
– Recommended for such applications as mapping,
airspace image processing: P-IV-2200+, 1+GB RAM, 2+
GB swap, SCSI HDD, 32 MB video RAM, 21” high
resolution monitor (1600*1200+ true color).
– Centaurus has friendly windows GUI, English or Russian
(custom localization for any another language is also
possible). User interface can be customized.

ERDAS Imagine
(now GIS & Mapping
Division of Leica

http://www.gis.leica-

–Much faster vectoring
–Higher automation
level
–Number of fast,
unique but very useful
computer geometry
operations
–Number of unique
measurement tools
–Pattern Recognition
based on both raster
and vector properties
–Much cheaper
The destination of all
these products is
enough similar and
that’s why they all have
similar features and
functionality: raster
image processing tools,
georeferencing and
registration, etc.
Nevertheless, each one
have its advantages
which make them
attractive for particular
customers.

All noted above plus the
following:
•Number of powerful
image processing tools,
filters, etc., which can be
very helpful for
processing of degraded
documents.
•High level of automation
and integrated VBA
makes possible to
complete Centaurus
easily with special tools
optimum for solving of
particular problems,
additionally to the set of
existed ones.
It is quite different
niche; vectorizers are
cheaper then Earth
Observation software,
but Centaurus is
much more powerful
comparing to any
vectorizer.
Due to open and
modular architecture
we can complete
Centaurus “Light”:
just for vectoring with
no power but
superfluous image
processing tools.

p
•Measurement of many
spatial (coordinates),
position (distance, contact,
interpenetration), metric,
topological angular, discrete
and Boolean parameters . It
is possible to import/export
data from /to anywhere and
use external analysis tools
together with the main
application.
•Automation of
measurement process
including software +
hardware integration (for
microscopy, computer
vision, etc.) makes possible
to be used not only for
research but immediately for
industry.
Usually these software is
for scientists and for
investigation and
measure images. Our
measurement tools are at
least not less powerful
(actually much more
powerful).
AnalySIS by Soft Imaging
is specialized for
microscopy; we have
developed similar
advanced microscopy
tools (image
recombination for
unlimited depth of focus )
in Centaurus for couple
days (see next slide).
