...Modtran® for Remote Sensing Applications
by ReSe Applications Schläpfer
MODO is a graphical front-end to the original Modtran® radiative transfer code. It has been created to ease the modelling of the at-sensor radiance for hyperspectral sensors but also for generic radiometric simulation tasks. The basic functionality includes:
- running Modtran® through the GUI (creation and translation of tape5-s),
- plotting the Modtran® - outputs,
- extraction and conversion of spectra from the Modtran® - output,
- easy creation of sensitivity analysis series,
- convolution of spectra to hyperspectral band characteristics, and
- simple atmospheric correction for multispectral imagery over flat terrain
The distributions of MODO PRO version 5.1 and MODO version 4 include platform-specific Modtran® executable software, compiled from the original Modtran® code* and is compatible to all current operating systems (Linux/MacOSX/Windows). The MODTRAN executables are available through MODO only.
