In this paper we present a new Web-based application for registering multi-sensor satellite images for image fusion operations. It is a distributed processing system which offers automatic or semi-automatic image registration and it is intended to provide a service to the Canadian Geospatial Data Infrastructure (CGDI) users through the GeoConnections Discovery Portal, formerly CEONet. It will be also provided on the web page of A.U.G. Signals Ltd.(www.augsignals.com) which will be connected to CEONet and CGDI. This innovative technology of A.U.G. Signals has all the advantages of current registration techniques, plus is can estimate reference (control) points automatically at high degree of accuracy and with zero false alarms. Users who apply existing remote sensing software tools, such as PCI or IDL/ENVI, with geo-referenced points for registration, may employ the A.U.G. Signals software to further improve the registration accuracy of their images. Geo-referenced control points may also be used with the proposed software. The proposed service is expected to evolve and expand other distributed processing initiatives of current interest, such as the emerging GRID technologies under development in United States and Europe and the Canadian high-speed network CA*Net3 and be part of the US OGC Web based Initiative.
