TWOPAC Classification Tool successfully deployed



November 20, 2013

The TWOPAC image classification tool (Twinned Object and Pixel Based Classification Chain) developed by the “Land Surface” department of DLR’s German Remote Sensing Data Center (DFD) was successfully deployed and tested abroad. The release of this open source software includes a seven-minute animation film introducing the idea behind TWOPAC, an extensive handbook, and the TWOPAC software itself, encapsulated in a virtual machine with all the components needed for installation on a USB stick.

Colleagues at the Institute of Remote Sensing and Digital Earth (RADI) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) and at the Ho Chi Minh City Institute of Resources Geography (VAST-GIRS) in Vietnam have tested TWOPAC and could run the software solely based on the information provided in the film and handbook.
