Terrain File Derivation - Shadow File fails

[ Edited ]

Hi all,

I encounter an issue when deriving terrain files for ATCOR3. The process works fine for Slope, Aspect and Skyview but fails when it comes to the Shadow File (no file is generated).
I´m using Erdas IMAGINE 2016 (Version 16.0, Build 650) SRTM img (distance= m; CS= Mollweide) in Signed Integer 16 format on Win10.
I also tried with a TanDEM-X DEM (distance=m; CS= Lat/Long) using different Angles in (mountainous) area, but the result is the same.

 

Shadow File Fails on SRTM

Here is the session log:

08/11/17 11:18:12 SessionMgr(7588): shadow.exe exited with status 1.

 

Maybe I am just overlooking sth. Tell me if I can provide you with additional info.

 

Best

Re: Terrain File Derivation - Shadow File fails

Hiya. I had this issue with ATCOR one time; I uninstalled ATCOR, reinstalled and it started working. However, I've also had intermittent issues with creating the Sky file as well. Probably not very helpful but in my opinion the new ATCOR workflow is streets ahead of the old ATCOR process. Cheers, Johnnie

Thanks! Reinstalling solved it for me too
