WinChips, the Copenhagen Image
Processing System, is a general-purpose software package for remote
sensing image processing and spatial data analysis with extensive
support for NOAA AVHRR data and Orthophoto creation. WinChips has been
developed to serve the software needs for teaching, research and
operational applications within satellite image processing and - to some
extent – GIS in close collaboration with the Institute of Geography,
University of Copenhagen. The close interaction between operational
users of remote sensing data, researchers, students and the Chips
Developing Team has ensured that ease of use, versatility and efficiency
have been considered in the design.
The standard WinChips software is now available as freeware while
support and extensions are supplied against payment. The software can be
downloaded from www.geogr.ku.dk/chips.
Future users must be registered before using the software. For more
information contact GRAS.
The Chips Scripting Language
(CSL) is a powerful tool for automating procedures in WinChips. GRAS has
profound expertise in application programming for WinChips and can
create scripts for any type of processing upon request. Courses
in WinChips and CLS are also available.
