Introduction

Remote Sensing
Collecting information without being in physical contact with an object

Sensor can be mounted on an Aircraft, Satellites, Vehicles etc. (Platforms) Can be from Active or Passive Sensors

Characteristics of a RS System

Imagery
From different Sensors (e.g. SPOT, Landsat, MODIS) With different Resolutions (e.g. 1km, 30m, 50cm)

Spatial Resolution
Low (e.g. MODIS-1km)

Medium (e.g. Landsat-30m) High (e.g. SPOT 5-2.5m)


Very high (e.g. Pleiades -0.5m)

What is Feature Extraction?


Process of finding and extracting specific objects of interest

Feature Extraction Workflow


Segmenting an image into regions of pixels. Computing attributes for each region to create objects. Classifying the objects by applying rules.

Workflow

Results

Rule Based Feature Extraction


Extracting specific features of interest using rules Based on the following objects characteristics:

ENVI Feature Extraction Module


Find and extract specific objects of interest from all types of imagery.

Identify them as objects like vehicles, buildings, roads, coastlines, rivers, lakes, and fields.
User-friendly tools

ENVI Feature Extraction Module


You can modify parameters and data at any stage of the process

Includes Unique step-by-step workflows simplifies previously complex image analysis tasks

Feature Extraction from LiDAR

LiDAR
Combination of Light and RaDAR
Light Detection and Ranging Operated at 532 to 1550 nm in EM spectrum It is an Active Sensor Data can be collected through aerial, terrestrial, or mobile methods

How it Works
Measures distance by illuminating a target with a laser and analyzing the reflected light

ENVI LiDAR
Software for Airborne LiDAR data processing Provides automatic solution for point cloud data processing Transforms geo-referenced point clouds into GIS layers and 3D models

Processes large quantities of data quickly
