Abstract
Operationalization has been a major concern in the remote sensing and cartography communities for years. The presented system SAT-GIS is a big step forward towards operational satellite image interpretation and digital cartography in an integrated GIS environment. The SAT-GIS development followed two major objectives (1) to provide a common graphical user interface (GUI) in order to fully integrate the worlds of raster, vector and attribute data processing and (2) to automate complex workflows with a maximum of interactive support. As a result, SAT-GIS provides to the user the necessary means to most efficiently perform his work in an intuitive manner. Facing budgetary limits and quite a short period of time for the development, SAT-GIS has been implemented with an utmost use of existing commercial software packages and easy-to-use development tool-kits. This paper describes the characteristics of SAT- GIS, its field of application, the development and highlights of those development activities which yielded the unique system capabilities of SAT-GIS.
