Most of image processing systems are based on command line functions or can only display one image at a time. This is a serious inconvenience for those who need an interactive system session or want to compare two images processed by different techniques at the same time.

The system was designed with these problems in mind. It is able to display the processed image right after an operation and to display several images simultaneously, making it simple to compare techniques. The system was also created with the purpose to be used in an academic environment. Its structured design makes it easy to understand and to aggregate new functions and features. Used properly it may be a valuable learning tool for the areas of image processing and X/Motif programming.

Future work will expand the system in order to process color and multispectral images. An object oriented approach is being considered to achieve such goal.
