Abstract:Three programming applications in BASIC HIST.BAS for computing histograms, HE.BAS for histogram equalised stretch, and NDVI.BAS for deriving the homonymous vegetation index were constructed in an effort to examine the potential of BASIC to support image processing applications with concentration given in this study in processing of satellite images. The efficiency of the programs was examined to demonstrate high performances satisfactory for any use in the field of image processing, including educational, research, or operational applications.
