This paper describes the design and development of a Java-based distributed system tool-environment for image analysis with special attention given to synthetic aperture radar (SAR) imaging applications. This tool-environment allows a given user to effect important image processing functions such as to visualize, manipulate, improve, filter, detect edges, reduce the noise on SAR images, as well as operations on SAR raw data. Also, this system has the unique option of allowing end-users to add their own customized algorithms as encapsulated operators to act on elements resident on local or remote SAR images-servers on a computer network.
