As a Spatial Modeler user, I want to have a Union Features operator made available, so that I have functionality equivalent to the GeoMedia command Union.
while creating large Spatial Models it is often very helpfull to create Submodels to keep the whole model overseeable.
As fast as this can be done, as comlicated it is to resolve the submodel if it is needed later. It is possible with the "undo" function, but if you want to resolve the submodel to a later point, you have to copy and paste and reconnect all port-connections.
So my question: Is it possible to implement a Button like the "create Submodel" Button to resolve the submodel, so that you keep all Input-/Output-Port connections?
This would sometimes helo a lot to save time during the spatial modelling process..
As a Spatial Modeler user, I want to have a Generate Functional Attributes operator made available, so that I have functionality equivalent to the GeoMedia command Functional Attributes.
As a Spatial Modeler user, I want the Features Database Output operator to add support for GeoPackage databases, so that I can output spatial model results directly into my GeoPackage database.
As a Spatial Modeler user, I want to have a Summarize Related Features operator made available, so that I have functionality equivalent to the GeoMedia command Aggregation.
As a Spatial Modeler user, I want to have an Intersect Features operator made available, so that I have functionality equivalent to the GeoMedia command Spatial Intersection.
As a Spatial Modeler user, I want to have a Merge Features operator made available, so that I have functionality equivalent to the GeoMedia command Analytical Merge.
Note: This more advanced operator would supersede the current Merge Features operator which provides only the most basic of merge capabilities as a companion to the Buffer Zones operator.
As a Spatial Modeler user, I want the Features Database Output operator to add support for PostGIS databases, so that I can output spatial model results directly into my PostGIS database.
As a Spatial Modeler user, I want to have a Mask Features operator made available, so that I have functionality equivalent to the GeoMedia command Spatial Difference.
I would like to see an new operator that could take as input an Boundary (IMAGINE.Boundary) and output Features (IMAGINE.Features).
That would allow a boundary from (say) an raster image to be available as a feature that can be used for feature analysis. e.g. filter feature by the raster boundary.
example concept (Mock up of an 'Boundary to Features' operator and how it could be used):
(An alternative approach would be to introduce a new Functional Attribute Expression such as 'CREATEPOINT(X,Y,Z,CRS)'. Could then take the Boundary and extract MinX, MaxX, MinY, MaxY as input to Create Point expression. That could then feed into existing functional attribute CREATEPOLYGON expression which I suspect would give Boundary To Features equiv)
As someone who wishes to interpolate polygon areas in in a DEM, I would like to have access to a wider range of interpolation techniques within Spatial Modeler. As a start, I would like to be able to use Distance Weight and, especially, Summation as I can within the Ribbon on the Panchromatic tab.
I am finding I am achieving better (more realistic, more accurate) results using these methods than the TIN method currently available in Spatial Modeler.
I am a user creating a thresholded NDVI dataset using Spatial Modeler. I would like to examine the real data values in order to ascertain the correct threshold value. Currently, I need to produce an output dataset in order to do this. It would be better if the Preview window allowed me to interogate the real values of the data rather than just being a dumb visualisation.
Need was to calculate LE90 for differences of two DEM's. Calclulation should be fairly simple Stddev multiplying with some factor.
Currently that value can be get just in Surface Difference tool's report but to me smartest place would be simply in Spatial Modeller's Statistics (Global-Statistics) function
Having that and maybe other similar factors in that so that all possible Statistical values can be exported as a single numbers would be easiest for end user. So do not stick just my LE90 need but think more generally capabilities of Statistics function and add there as many statistical parameters as you easily can.
As a designer of spatial models for image classification I would like to be able to input a set of points (or lines, or polygons), representing known land cover types, and grow a polygon of neighboring pixels with similar attributes to the seed pixel location(s). This would assist in creating training sets from field samples.
This would be functionality similar to that provided in the 2D View's Grow function, but in a fashion which can be easily automated across multiple seed points.
As the Spatial Modeler user, I would like all attributes from the thematic raster to be transferred to the shapefile's attribute table via the Convert to Features operator. Currently, we have the workaround that is to run rastertoshape.exe via Command Line. It's not the best solution, especially if the model will be further used as a recipe in Smart M.Apps, for example.
The good bonus here would be also transferring color table of thematic raster to a shapefile's symbology file (evs).
As a user of Spatial Modeler, I would like to be able to right hand click anywhere within the workspace and select either Save or Save as... as an option, rather than going to the File menu on the ribbon.
A bit like this, perhaps?
As a user of the Spatial Modeler, I would like to be able to either double click, or right hand click and select run just this, on the Preview operator and for the model to preview. This is preferable than going to the Preview button on the ribbon. Numerous trainees have tried to do this so it's not just me that would find this more intuative. Cheers, Johnnie
