Abstract : The Retrieval, Display, and Analysis Support Tool (RDAST) is a system designed to facilitate access to the wide variety of available earth imagery. Using the ARC/INFO geographic information system, RDAST converts user requirements into specific sensor parameters and searches internal and external databases for the availability of suitable imagery. Sample imagery are displayed. The current implementation is based on public systems (LANDSAT, SPOT) and several airborne collections, but is not limited to this. This document contains viewgraphs from the final briefing for this program. (AN)
