Opticks Demo for Ohio View

  1. 1. Opticks Demo for OhioView 5 November 2010
  2. 2. Page_2Page_2 What is Opticks?  Perform Image and Video Analysis ─ Spectral, Synthetic Aperture Radar, Thermal  Similar to the following commercial tools: ─ SOCET GXP, IMAGINE, RemoteView, ENVI  Extendable with plug-ins: ─ Add import/export support for new file formats ─ Implement new data processing algorithms ─ Add new windows, mouse modes, toolbars, keyboard shortcuts  Most of the application is implemented as extensions using our public extension API
  3. 3. Page_3Page_3 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
  4. 4. Page_4Page_4 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
  5. 5. Page_5Page_5 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
