ERDAS geographic information software passes Windows 2000 test

ERDAS Inc. has had its ERDAS IMAGINE 8.4 geographic information system certified

to run on Microsoft Corp.'s new Windows 2000 operating system.

Designed to capture the process experts use to analyze and compare results

to arrive at a solution, ERDAS allows someone who is not an expert in the

field to extract information from digital photographs and radar images for

spatial analysis, map creation, 3D and 2D feature collection, and stereo

viewing.

The software gives users the ability to view accurate 3D images of elevations

and clean up images by removing speckles, analyzing image textures and merging

images from several mediums, including satellite pictures, 35mm film and

video tapes.

Pricing varies depending on the range of modules acquired and customized

configurations. The starting price for IMAGINE 8.4 operating on Windows

is $2,000 and $3,000 for UNIX. Discounts are available for educational programs

and government organizations.
