Description from Website

SamplePoint is a manual image-analysis program designed to facilitate vegetation cover measurements from nadir digital images of any scale. Operating essentially as a digital point frame, the software loads images, places classification points on the image, and stores classification data to a database as the user classes each point. Up to three simultaneous views of each classification point, at varying zoom levels, are possible. Functional use is not limited to vegetation classification. Installation file contains SamplePoint, SPTracker, a Help Manual, a PowerPoint Tutorial and two sample images.
