ERDAS IMAGINE is a remote sensing application with raster graphics editor abilities designed by ERDAS for geospatial applications. The latest version is 2013, version 13.0.2. ERDAS IMAGINE is aimed primarily at geospatial raster data processing and allows the user to prepare, display and enhance digital images for mapping use in geographic information system (GIS) or in computer-aided design (CAD) software. It is a toolbox allowing the user to perform numerous operations on an image and generate an answer to specific geographical questions.
efore the ERDAS IMAGINE Suite, ERDAS, Inc. developed various products to process satellite imagery from AVHRR, Landsat MSS and TM, and Spot Image into land cover, land use maps, map deforestation, and assist in locating oil reserves under the product name ERDAS. These older ERDAS applications were rewritten from FORTRAN to C and C++ and exist today within the ERDAS IMAGINE Suite which has grown to support most optical and radar mapping satellites, airborne mapping cameras and digital sensors used for mapping.
