Learn ENVI software online - Tutorial guide

ENVI (the Environment for Visualizing Images) is a state-of-the-art image processing system designed to provide comprehensive analysis of satellite and aircraft remote sensing data. It provides a powerful, innovative, and user-friendly environment to display and analyze images of any size and data type on a wide range of computing platforms.

With its combined file- and band-based approach to image processing, ENVI allows you to work with entire image files, individual bands, or both. When an input file is opened, each spectral band becomes available to all system functions. With multiple input files open, you can easily select bands from different files to be processed together. ENVI also includes tools to extract spectra, use spectral libraries, and to analyze high spectral resolution image datasets such as AVIRIS, GERIS, and GEOSCAN. In addition to its world-class hyperspectral analysis tools, ENVI provides specialized capabilities for analysis of advanced SAR datasets such as JPL's SIR-C, AIRSAR, and TOPSAR.

ENVI is written entirely in IDL, the Interactive Data Language. IDL is a powerful, array-based, structured programming language that provides integrated image processing and display capabilities and an easy to use GUI toolkit. ENVI is available as ENVI (offering full ENVI command line capabilities) and ENVI RT (the runtime version of ENVI). The only difference between ENVI and ENVI RT is that ENVI RT does not provide user access to the underlying IDL environment. You will not be able to complete the User Function tutorial provided here if you are running ENVI RT.
