Insight is a software which handles hyperspectral images, two-dimensional images and spectra, measured by spectroscopy and microscopy instruments.
These data often have microscope pictures with their measurement location data as meta data which are shown together. Insight has a lot of functions to display, process and analyze them such as overlay display of translucent data over the microscope image.

Fig. :Three kinds of data ( Spectra, a two-dimensional images and a hyperspectral image)


  • Three kinds of data; hyperspectral images (.ssi), two-dimensional images (.smi) and spectra (.ssg)
  • Flexible export/import between different format data.
  • Integrated interface for all kinds of data format.
  • Single window with tab-page system handles a variety of data easily.
  • File explorer system makes it easy and quick to access any opened data.
  • A lot of spectra are store in one data (.ssi)
  • A lot of two- images are store in one data (.smi)
  • Intuitive creation of spectrum image in a hyper-spectral image. (.ssi)
