Resolve Submodel Button

Status: Delivered
by on ‎05-21-2019 02:56 AM

Dear collegues,

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..

 

Best regards,

 

Moritz Seidel

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.

Convert to Surface Operator in Spatial Modeler

Status: Delivered
by ‎04-03-2019 01:53 AM - edited ‎04-03-2019 01:54 AM

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.

An "Interpolate using IDW" operator is delivered as part of Spatial Modeler 2020.

 

This operator is licensed for use by licensed users of IMAGINE Advantage, IMAGINE Professional, GeoMedia Advantage, and GeoMedia Professional

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):

BoundaryToFeatures.png

 

(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)

Preview Window Provides Real Data Values

Status: Delivered
by on ‎09-28-2017 01:10 AM

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.

LE90 and maybe other statistical values in Statistics operator in Spatial Modeller

Status: Delivered
by on ‎11-07-2017 04:36 AM - last edited on ‎11-09-2017 12:24 PM by Technical Evangelist

Need was to calculate LE90 for differences of two DEM's. Calclulation should be fairly simple Stddev multiplying with some factor.

 

https://hexagongeospatial.fluidtopics.net/reader/meyVrnUBMv8PbuLfyV62kA/eftYNoAlk3DWIU2u6WUpwQ

 

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.

The preferreed solution would be to add a "Get Raster Values by Percentage" operator, which thereby provides a more generic capability.

Region Grow (seed) as an Operator

Status: Delivered
by Technical Evangelist on ‎01-10-2018 07:52 AM

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.

Delivered in ERDAS IMAGINE 2020 Update 1

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
