ReSe Applications Schläpfer is a small Swiss company focused on remote sensing data processing, and specifically on imaging spectroscopy. It was founded in 2000 as a spin-off from the Remote Sensing Laboratories (RSL) of the University of Zurich. The company is owned and run by Dr. Daniel Schläpfer. The major goal is the development and distribution of imaging spectroscopy and remote sensing software. The company expertise is in geometric and atmospheric modeling of radiation in optical remote sensing, as well as the geometric and atmospheric preprocessing of optical remote sensing data. A special focus has been put so far in the processing of airborne hyperspectral imagery.
One ground breaking development of ReSe is the PARGE® orthorectification software for airborne optical scanner systems. Furthermore, the company successfully advanced the development of the original ATCOR® atmospheric correction software packages in close collaboration with the inventor, Dr. Rolf Richter, from DLR Oberpfaffenhofen (Germany). ReSe has exclusive rights for redistribution of the original implementation of the ATCOR software suite. Furthermore, ReSe developed the MODO software for the handling of Modtran® radiative transfer calculations for use in remote sensing. With this regards, ReSe holds a license for the redistribution of the Modtran®4 and Modtran®5 software components as part of its products.
ReSe holds worldwide exclusive rights for the software it's developing:
- PARGE®: ReSe is the owner for the PARGE trademark (worldwide).
- ATCOR®: The ATCOR trademark has been registered by DLR worldwide and ReSe holds the rights for distribution of the ATCOR software products.
- MODTRAN®: The MODTRAN trademark is registered by SSI (USA) and ReSe holds a license to use the software and its trademark as part of its products.
We are proud to provide our software to a broad community of customers worldwide. Our applications are used at universities, scientific institutes, sensor system operators and commercial entities over all continents (see map below).
