Abstract:To make the most of remotely sensed images and apply them in natural resource management, foresters and other land managers need computer software systems. The ultimate goal is to extract meaningful information from raw images and communicate it to support effective decisionmaking. The following description of the state-of-the-art capabilities available in selected contemporary software systems is a starting point, but readers should compare all available systems that perform a particular function. In many cases there exist low-cost or free alternatives, some of which are mentioned here.
