Abstract : KANDIDATS is a software package of multi-image processing programs designed to run on the GE-635 computers. The primary purpose for the writing of this system was to consolidate many digital image analysis programs into a single package and to make them easily useable along or in combination on large data sets. Some objectives followed in the writing of the system were to make user interface fairly simple to make the machine processing efficient, to use a standard data format for compatibility between analysis programs, to make expansion to include new analysis programs easy, to maintain machine compatibility wherever possible, and to be able to handle all likely data sets. KANDIDATS executes as a single-activity batch program. It determines which analysis programs to execute, which data sets to use, and what programs in the order specified by the user. The KANDIDATS monitor performs mounting, dismounting, and positioning of data tapes as needed and performs the reading and writing of data in the standard data format. (Author)
