Abstract: Did you ever try to produce a reliable land cover map from Earth Observation data? How many steps are involved and how many different tools do you need? Did you succeed in a reasonable amount of time? IMPACT toolbox offers a combination of elements of remote sensing, photo interpretation and processing technologies in a portable and stand-alone GIS environment. Image extraction, layerstack, radiometric calibration, normalization, mosaicking, automatic classification and segmentation could be easily performed while a user-friendly environment offers map editing and validation features. Based on open sources technologies, IMPACT relies on GeoExt, OpenLayers and Mapserver for the graphical user interface and raster/vector rendering; EO data processing is carried out by GDAL and Python. Single-date or multi-date segmentation is performed throughout Baazt segmenter libraries (Inpe's TerraAIDA Operators).
