The use of digital sensors in earth resources applications appears to be well-established. The signals sent to the ground from the LANDSAT (previously known as the Earth Resources Technology Satellite, ERTS) Multispectral Scanner (MSS) are digitized prior to transmission. For future earth-observation programs, both the sensor outputs and the ground processing will be digital. If such sensors are to serve a useful role in the surveying and management of the earth's resources, efficient methods for correcting and extracting information from the sensor outputs must be developed. The Federal Systems Division of IBM has developed an image processing facility to experimentally process, view, and record digital image data. This facility has been used to support LANDSAT digital image processing investigations and advanced imagee processing research and development. A brief description of the facility is presented, some techniques that have been developed to correct the image data are discussed, and some results obtained by users of the facility are described.
