- parameters files.
- .
- BESTGUI allows you to easily generate the parameters files for the BEST
- tools and launch the processing from the GUI. It provides:
-   * enhanced menus and toolbars
-   * persistent preferences
-   * smart environment handling
-   * colorized output log
-   * progress bars for processing completion
-   * the ability of stopping a running task from the GUI (stop button)

-Pkg-Description: Next ESA SAR Toolbox (NEST)
- The Next ESA SAR Toolbox (NEST) is a user friendly open source toolbox
- for reading, post-processing, analysing and visualising the large
- archive of data (from Level 1) from ESA SAR missions including
- ERS-1 & 2, ENVISAT and in the future Sentinel-1. In addition, NEST
- supports handling of products from third party missions including
- JERS-1, ALOS PALSAR, TerraSAR-X, Radarsat-2 and Cosmo-Skymed.
+Pkg-Description: SeNtinel Application Platform (SNAP)
+ A common architecture for all Sentinel Toolboxes is being jointly
+ developed by Brockmann Consult, Array Systems Computing and C-S called
+ the Sentinel Application Platform (SNAP).
- NEST helps the remote sensing community by supporting the handling of
- various SAR products and complimenting existing software packages.
- NEST has been built using the BEAM Earth Observation Toolbox and
- Development Platform and it covers the functionality of the older Basic
- Envisat SAR Toolbox BEST. NEST is currently undergoing development with
- periodic new releases. The major new functionality in NEST over BEST is
- an integrated viewer and orthorectification and mosaicking of SAR
- images.
+ The SNAP architecture is ideal for Earth Observation processing and
+ analysis due the following technological innovations: Extensibility,
+ Portability, Modular Rich Client Platform, Generic EO Data Abstraction,
+ Tiled Memory Management, and a Graph Processing Framework.
- NEST is extensible with an API that allows users to easily create their
- own plugin Readers, Processors and Writers. NEST is open source under
- the GNU General Public License (GNU GPL). If you are interested in
- contributing by developing a reader or writer for a product please
- contact us.
+ Feature Highlights:
+ * Common architecture for all Toolboxes
+ * Very fast image display and navigation even of giga-pixel images
+ * Graph Processing Framework (GPF): for creating user-defined
+   processing chains
+ * Advanced layer management allows adding and manipulation of new overlays
+   such as images of other bands, images from WMS servers or ESRI shapefiles
+ * Rich region-of-interest definitions for statistics and various plots
+ * Easy bitmask definition and overlay
+ * Flexible band arithmetic using arbitrary mathematical expressions
+ * Accurate reprojection and ortho-rectification to common map projections,
+ * Geo-coding and rectification using ground control points
+ * Automatic SRTM DEM download and tile selection
+ * Product library for scanning and cataloging large archives efficiently
+ * Multithreading and Multi-core processor support
+ * Integrated WorldWind visualisation
- NEST is being developed by Array Systems Computing Inc. of Toronto
- Canada under ESA Contract number 20698/07/I-LG.  InSAR functionalities
- are being developed by a joint effort of PPO.labs, Delft University of
- Technology and Array.
+ SNAP also includes:
+ * the Sentinel-1 Toolbox (S1TBX) consists of a collection of processing
+   tools, data product readers and writers and a display and analysis
+   application to support the large archive of data from ESA SAR missions
+   including SENTINEL-1, ERS-1 & 2 and ENVISAT, as well as third party
+   SAR data from ALOS PALSAR, TerraSAR-X, COSMO-SkyMed and RADARSAT-2.
+   The various processing tools could be run independently from the
+   command-line and also integrated within the graphical user interface.
+   The Toolbox includes tools for calibration, speckle filtering,
+   coregistration, orthorectification, mosaicking, data conversion,
+   polarimetry and interferometry.
+ * the Sentinel-2 Toolbox consists of a rich set of visualisation,
+   analysis and processing tools for the exploitation of optical
+   high-resolution products including the upcoming Sentinel-2 MSI sensor.
+   As a multi-mission remote sensing toolbox, it also provides support for
+   third party data from RapidEye, SPOT, MODIS (Aqua and Terra),
+   Landsat (TM) and others.
+ * the Sentinel-3 Toolbox consists of a rich set of visualisation,
+   analysis and processing tools for the exploitation of OLCI and SLSTR
+   data from the upcoming Sentinel-3 mission.
+   As a multi-mission remote sensing toolbox, it also supports the ESA
+   missions Envisat (MERIS & AATSR), ERS (ATSR), SMOS as well as third
+   party data from MODIS (Aqua and Terra), Landsat (TM),
+   ALOS (AVNIR & PRISM) and others.
+   The various tools can be run from an intuitive desktop application or
+   via a command-line interface.
+   A rich application programming interface allows for development of
+   plugins using Java or Python.
+ * the project SMOS Toolbox for SNAP (SMOS-Box) has been brought into life
+   in order to support users of data acquired by ESA’s Soil Moisture and
+   Ocean Salinity (SMOS) mission.
+   SNAP and the SMOS-Box are user tools which ESA/ESRIN is providing free
+   of charge to the Earth Observation Community.

-Pkg-Description: Meteorological Post-Processing Package (MPoP)
- The Meteorological Post-Processing package is a python library for
- generating RGB products for meteorological remote sensing.
- As such it can create RGB composites directly from satellite instrument
- channels, or take advantage of precomputed PGEs.
- .
- It is designed to be easily extendable to support any meteorological
- satellite by the creation of plugins. In the base distribution,
- it is provided support for Meteosat 7, 8, 9, MTSAT1R, MTSAT2, GOES 11,
- GOES 12, GOES 13 through the use of mipp, and Noaa 15, 16, 17, 18, 19,
- and Metop A through the use of aapp and ahamap.
- .
- Reprojection of data is also available through the use of the pyresample
- package.
