ERDAS IMAGINE® - Benefits



Geographic imaging professionals need to process vast amounts of geospatial data every day — often relying on software designed for other purposes and add-on applications that create almost as many problems as they solve. Is it possible to save both time and money, leverage existing data investments, and improve your image analysis capabilities, with just one software application? Yes, it is…

THE WORLD’S MOST WIDELY-USED REMOTE SENSING SOFTWARE PACKAGE

ERDAS IMAGINE is offered within the Producer Suite of the Power PortfolioTM. The Producer Suite empowers you to collect, process, analyze and understand raw geospatial data, and ultimately deliver usable information. This includes Hexagon Geospatial’s desktop-based GIS, remote sensing, and photogrammetry offerings.

ERDAS IMAGINE provides true value, consolidating remote sensing, photogrammetry, LiDAR analysis, basic vector analysis, and radar processing into a single product. 

MAKE THE MOST OF YOUR GEOSPATIAL DATA

Imagery and LiDAR are the primary sources of data for mapping and managing features or resources. Whether you are studying changes in urban growth, sensitive environments, mapping resources, or assessing damage from natural disasters, a geospatial data archive enables you to reference and measure the amount of change that has taken place in a geographic area. Accurate and up-to-date data leads to quicker, more informed decisions.

ERDAS IMAGINE unites users from different departments within your organization, saving training time and increasing productivity. Your co-workers, business partners, and clients can now work on a project and produce consistent results through a single intuitive interface. You can also customize ERDAS IMAGINE to simplify your workflow

  • VERSATILE

    For organizations with extensive collections of geospatial data, ERDAS IMAGINE supports enterprise-enabled geospatial image processing that utilizes a centralized relational database to store geospatial information. This provides enormous benefit to an institution, making data visible and accessible to end users through data management solutions such as ERDAS APOLLO. Existing and future investments in image and feature geospatial information are exploitable by the greatest number of decision-makers.
    As users upgrade their hardware and operating systems, ERDAS IMAGINE takes advantage of these new technologies through threading, parallel processing, and minimizing the number of times the pixel is touched on the hard disk. Batch tools in IMAGINE Advantage® and IMAGINE Professional® enable multi-core and distributed processing jobs, allowing large projects to fully leverage system and network resources.

  • SEAMLESS

    How do you maximize the investment in your geospatial data? ERDAS IMAGINE simplifies classification, orthorectification, mosaicking, reprojection, and image interpretation while maintaining the integrity of the geospatial data you need for updating your GIS in multiple formats.

    The intuitive ERDAS IMAGINE interface streamlines your workflow and saves time. Powerful algorithms and data processing functions work behind the scenes so you can concentrate on your analyses. The quick display and ability to work with multiple datasets in geographically linked viewers in ERDAS IMAGINE dramatically reduces the time you would otherwise spend trying to manually relate information from various sourc

  • COMPLETE

    ERDAS IMAGINE is easy-to-use, raster-based software designed specifically to extract information from images. Perfect for beginners and experts alike, easy-to-learn ERDAS IMAGINE enables you to process imagery like a seasoned professional, regardless of your experience in geographic imaging.

  • FLEXIBLE

    Available in three product tiers, ERDAS IMAGINE is capable of handling any geospatial task. Simple enough for the most novice user to get started, to those requiring robust accuracy suited for any application or project that any organization demands. All three tiers offer remarkably fast viewing and processing performance, even when handling massive data sets from any sensor in any format, dynamically.

DISCOVER THE POTENZIAL OF YOUR IMAGERY

With a wide array of tools enabling you to analyze data from virtually any source and present in formats ranging from printed maps to 3D models, ERDAS IMAGINE offers you one comprehensive solution for all of your geographic imaging and image processing needs. It simplifies and streamlines your production workflow, saving you time, money, and resources without sacrificing accuracy.

ERDAS IMAGINE fully enables the display, editing, and analysis of point clouds derived from LiDAR or generated from point correlation of stereo pairs. It also allows direct reading of LAS-formatted points clouds, enabling 2D/3D/profile viewing, symbolization, measurement, editing, and classification

Increase your accuracy using the flexible and comprehensive toolset of the standard in imaging software — ERDAS IMAGINE, from the inventors of commercial remote-sensing software. Additionally, Hexagon Geospatial provides an array of add-ons that expand the core functionality of ERDAS IMAGINE so you can tailor it to your organization’s individual geospatial and business needs.
