Paper Abstract

Image processing activities at the Institut fur Kommunikationstechnik are concerned with biological and remote sensing applications which are carried out in close collaboration with external research groups. To date, image processing entirely relied on the services provided by the central computing facilities and photomechanical image read/write hardware at the institute. Systematic image manipulations like geometric and radiometric corrections, enhancement and restoration or some types of non-linear filtering were performed in volume within the given configuration. Considerable turnaround times have frustrated attempts at scene related processing. An interactive image processing facility was designed to provide computing power compatible with the central computing facilities, fast data handling, and multi-user access for image processing sessions and software development. The configuration is based on a VAX 11/780 host computer linked to two front end image display stations with local intelligence and to high quality image read/write devices. Data management is facilitated by two tape drives and more than 300 Mbyte disk storage.
