microBRIAN is a powerful yet inexpensive, flexible package for the analysis of remote sensing data using a micro-computer system.
The BRIAN in microBRIAN stands for Barrier Reef Image Analysis – a mini-computer system to transform Landstat images into reef maps showing water depth and other features.
CSIRO scientists joined forces with the Melbourne company, Microprocessor Applications to make this valuable tool available for a wide range of image processing applications that once depended on large computer systems.
The standard microBRIAN package can process digital images from not only Landstat, but other satellites and airborne scanners.
microBRIAN is a world breakthrough for digital image analysis.
