NASA Image2000

NASA Image2000 is being developed by NASA Goddard Space Flight Center Code 588 and NASA's Scientific and Educational Endeavors (SEE). The purpose of NASA Image2000 is to provide a host-independent image processing system for students and educators using tutorials developed by SEE and the Center for Image Processing in Education (CIPE). The core plug-in architecture allows the system to be expanded to accommodate other segments of the imaging community. NASA Image2000 is based on Sun's Java Advanced Imaging (JAI) and includes tools for science which are accessed through a standard menu interface with toolbars that are customizable through XML definitions.

The Directed Acyclic Graph (DAG) interface is provided for the interactive creation of new operations by combining and linking together existing operations. New operations can be saved, edited and shared among a global community of NASA Image2000 users. A built-in JavaScript interpreter allows easy access to all public Java classes.
