New version for the Multi-dimensional Data Format (MDD) analysis tool(MARS v2.03) was developed based on MARS v1.0, which was published in June 2017. It is for analyzing earth observation remote sensing data, including the data in time series, spatial scale series and multiple bands series. In order to make the data easily to be accessed and inter-operated, a new data format was developed, which is recorded as .mdd (Multi-Dimensional Data Format). The MDD data format records data covering remote sensing pixels, bands, spectrums with temporal specifications with a group of data formats including TSB (Temporal Sequential in Band), TSP (Temporal Sequential in Pixel), TIB (Temporal Interleaved by Band), TIP (Temporal Interleaved by Pixel) and TIS (Temporal Interleaved by Spectrum). The Inter-operational tool for temporal-spatial data analysis in Multi-Dimension Data Format (.mdd), also called as MARS (Multi-dimensional Analysis system of Remote Sensing), provides the functions of the .mdd data format conversions to/from Landsat (.tif), MODIS (.hdf), ENVI (.img), reprocessing, classification and analysis. More functions such as UNVI vegetation index calculation are added at the new version of MARS 2.03, and more, the data processing speed and stability of the tool has been greatly improved.Browse
