Abstract:

This report documents the technical accomplishments of the Land Analysis Support System LASS. The LASS is an integrated hardwaresoftware system designed to provide the means to produce earth surface data for regions of the world that are beyond the near term production plans of the Defense Mapping Agency. The LASS design is based on the capabilities provided by the Land Analysis System LAS. LAS is an image analysis system developed cooperatively by the Goddard Space Flight Center GSFC and USGS EROS Data Center EDC. The LASS provides the digital image processing capability that is necessary to convert image data into a digital proof plot. These proof plots are input into either the SCITEX or the color Fire System, where four color separates are made. These color separates are used to produce the color printing plates, contact negatives or color lithography from which the image maps are made.
