Accessing and processing of multispectral imagery in an interactive way is essential to a number of operational scenarios. This paper illustrates their use in the context of forest management and planning, by presenting the results of a system that allows operators to access large repositories of geographical data, including multi-spectral imaging, and to process them in a very user friendly way. The project has seen the involvement of personnel from a local planning authority and it has

This is challenging current technologies, creating a potential information overload. The paper will illustrate how the use of interactive 3D technologies to access and process multi-spectral data within a comprehensive framework capable to manage a large variety of different geographical information, can be beneficial to reduce access time to information and to improve the entire decision-making process.
