ERDAS Imagine Objective

Hello everyone.

I have recently been given a project in my new job to explore what objects can be identified from mobile mapping data (point cloud) using OBJECTIVE. I was wondering if anyone has done anything similar to this before and could offer some tips or links as I have very little knowledge in this area and I am WFH so can't get help from work.

Is OBJECTIVE the best thing to be using for this?

Do I need to convert the point cloud data to something else to help? 

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!

Thanks

Re: ERDAS Imagine Objective

Hi Andy,

 

IMAGINE Objective is designed to extract features/objects from Imagery and is not intended to be used with point cloud cloud as the primary input data.

 

You can convert the point cloud into Imagery (if the point cloud has either RGB(N) color and/or Intensity information) and attempt to extract features based on the image.

 

Best regards, 

Sam Megenta
