What's new in Spatial Modeler SDK 2016

by Technical Evangelist ‎06-28-2016 09:58 AM - edited ‎11-04-2016 06:25 AM (1,151 Views)

With the release of Spatial Modeler SDK 2016 we have added over 100 new operators.  For a complete list see "New Operators for Spatial Modeler" in the ERDAS IMAGINE® 2016 Release Guide.  In addition we have added support through the SMSDK for writing and using Feature and Point Cloud operators.  The APIs for these classes are documented under the SpatialModelerFeatures and SpatialModelerPointCloud namespaces in the API documentation.


If you have used a previous version of the SMSDK, please note that there have also been some changes to the Spatial Modeler SDK for 2016:

  • Changes to the search locations for plug-in DLLs
  • Several API changes
    • DataType renamed to NumberType
    • Additonal parameter to Operator::Apply and RaseterOperator::ProcessBlock
    • New JSON methods on Data; SerializedString methods have been deprecated
    • New Operator::ShowHelp method
    • New Keywords methods on Operator
    • New BandCount methods on RasterInfo; PlaneCount methods have been deprecated
    • Many new classes in the SpatialModelerGeospatial and SpatialModelerMetadata namespaces

For more information about these changes as well as examples and guidance, see the Spatial Modeler Guide 2016 (or download PDF below).
