The purpose of this thesis work was to provide soft ware in Fortran programming language that will read, print and process data contained on Landsat computer compatible tapes. The programming was done on the Xerox Sigma 9 computer at the Rochester Institute of Technology. The processing involved reading and re-registering fractions of files and performing simple numeric operations on the digital spectral radiance values of individual picture elements. The result was a fraction of a Landsat scene containing pixels that are classified as vegetation, water, mixed elements or invariant features.
