BasinTools is designed to facilitate the use of remotely sensed data by users who are not remote sensing specialist. Information from remotely sensed data would be used by a wide variety of engineers, planners, and scientist except they lack the expertise, sophisticated software, or high-end hardware to make use of the data. Federal, State, and Local Governments all have need of information derived from remotely sensed data, yet when faced with the overwhelming cost of implementation they invariably opt for more affordable, less accurate alternatives. The proposed study prototypes the implementation of a Web-based application that is user friendly, affordable, and accurate. The prototype will provide ?canned? push button analysis of imagery a user is viewing through the Web portal and viewing results of the analyses on the fly through the custom online viewing tools. This Web based approach limits the amount of requisite user expertise, software, hardware, and computing power necessary to perform these analyses. Commercial manufacturers have employed the use of just-in-time inventory control for decades, this innovation applies the same cost saving logic to remotely sensed data; products are created and delivered on the fly with no human intervention via the Web
