ESA BEST and BRAT Toolboxes

The Basic Envisat SAR Toolbox (BEST) and Basic Envisat Altimetry Toolbox (BRAT) are both collections of executable software tools designed especially for use with ESA SAR and Altimetry data respectively.

The BEST Tool allows the reading of data from the ASAR and AMI instruments and the ability to generate quick look images as well as functionality such as statistical analysis and re-sampling algorithms. The BRAT Toolbox can read Altimetry data from the ERS-1, ERS-2, Topex/Poseidon, Geosat, Jason-1, Envisat and the planned Cryosat and Jason-2 missions. A user friendly interface allows access to processing functions and visualisation tools.
