Opticks is an open-source remote sensing and imagery analysis platform with similar functionality to ERDAS IMAGINE, RemoteView and ENVI. The software is intended to be easy to use, with drag-and-drop opening of files from many sources, and easy to extend, with user algorithms written in IDL.

Opticks is an open-source remote sensing and imagery analysis platform with similar functionality to ERDAS IMAGINE, RemoteView and ENVI.

The software is intended to be easy to use, with drag-and-drop opening of files from many sources - most raster formats, raw format files (HDF5, Hyperion, DTED), and vector files such as ESRI shapefiels.

Opticks is intense to be easy to extend, with user algorithms written in IDL, a scientific programming language intended for visualisation of data.
