eATE DEM extraction with SPOT images

Hi,

 

I am trying to extract DEMs from stereo SPOT imagery using eATE but each time it fails when the processing bar gets to 100% in the process list. I followed the steps in the tutorial (http://community.hexagongeospatial.com/t5/ERDAS-IMAGINE/Automatic-Terrain-Extraction-with-Dense-Poin...) but every time it fails.

 

I thought it may be a processing issue but when I tried it on another computer with more RAM it also failed at the same point. 

 

Any ideas as to what the issue might be would be very welcome!

Re: eATE DEM extraction with SPOT images

Hello Anne,

 

What is your IMAGINE version? Could you click "About IMAGINE" under Help Tab and let me know your build number?

 

Could you provide us your IMAGINE session log? There might be error or warning messages in the session log that might help us diagnose the problem. Session log is saved in the directory specified in your preferences. Or, please go to IMAGINE->File->Session->View Session Log then re-run the process and send us the warning/error messages you see there.

 

Best Regards,

Yasemin

Re: eATE DEM extraction with SPOT images

Hello Anne,

 

It seems like eATE had an issue when processing pyramid level 0. Could you please re-run eATE but this time you stop at pyramid level 1. To do this go to Edit Menu->Process Engine Settings-> General Tab-> Change “Stop at Pyramid Level” to 1. And re-run eATE and check if the result is dense enough and acceptable for you. If it fails or you are not happy with the result please submit a support ticket and provide your images and the block file and we will investigate this issue.

 

Best Regards,

Yasemin

Re: eATE DEM extraction with SPOT images

Hi Yasemin,

 

I've been looking at this issue for Anne. It seems that eATE is failing as IMAGINE was installed as a package using Cloudpaging. When this was removed and a clean IMAGINE install was installed locally, eATE ran correctly on the same block / eate project.

 

Any idea why this may be happening?

 

Cheers,

 

Johnnie

Re: eATE DEM extraction with SPOT images

Anne/Johnnie,

 

We don'tt offer an Online version of IMAGINE online 16.0  The last and only IMAGINE Online version was 15.0 (which uses cloudpaging). Where do you get this version of IMAGINE?

 

Thanks, sam

Re: eATE DEM extraction with SPOT images

Hiya, Sorry, wasn't clear; this is an install provided by her university. I uninstalled the Cloudpaging version, installed a local version and eATE worked fine. It seems (so far) it's only eATE that's failing using the Cloudpaging version. Any idea why? Even though v15 was deployed by Hexagon with Cloudpaging I don't think it's a supported virtualisatoin though - is it? Cheers, Johnnie

Re: eATE DEM extraction with SPOT images

Hello Johnnie,

 

IMAGINE Photogrammetry and IMAGINE AutoDTM are not supported in IMAGINE Online. eATE would not work in cloudified IMAGINE.

 

Best Regards,

Yasemin
