ENVI & IDL Services Engine for Web Accessible Multi- & Hyperspectral Applications


The geospatial community, including the field of environmental imaging spectroscopy, has a growing need for online on-demand analytic capabilities.  Work previously done on desktop workstations will migrate to a web-accessible environment to mitigate growing data volumes, bandwidth usage, and end user requirements.  Web based applications (or 'apps') are intended to apply analytic methods, procedures, and routines to image datasets stored within centralized server repositories.  Exelis Visual information Solutions (Exelis VIS) developed an enterprise-enabled processing engine, the ENVI & IDL Services Engine (ESE), that provides remote users access to the power of ENVI image analysis and IDL applications from a web or mobile client interface.  HySpeed Computing is building applications for use with ENVI and ESE, as well as creating a framework for the remote sensing community to develop, deploy and exchange their own applications.
