New Features

ENVI 5.3 includes the new and enhanced features listed below. See the following sections:

Sensors and Data Formats

ENVI reads and displays imagery from the following sensors and data formats:

  • Deimos-2
  • DubaiSat-2
  • Pleiades-HR and SPOT mosaic tiles
  • GeoPackage vectors
  • Google-formatted SkySat-2
  • Sentinel-2

Image Processing

Point Clouds

Use the Generate Point Clouds by Dense Image Matching tool to create point clouds in LAS format from two or more satellite images taken from different view points. The following sensors are supported:

  • DPPDB with a generic RPC sensor model
  • GeoEye-1 in DigitalGlobe format (.til) and PVL format
  • Pleiades-1A
  • QuickBird
  • SPOT-6
  • WorldView-1 through -3

This tool runs on Windows 64-bit platforms and requires a separate license for the ENVI Photogrammetry Module (formerly the ENVI Orthorectification Module), which also includes access to Rigorous Orthorectification.


The QUick Atmospheric Correction (QUAC)® algorithm was updated to the latest baseline source code from Spectral Sciences, Inc. The following reference summarizes the updated algorithm:

Bernstein, L.S., X. Jin, B. Grebor, and S. Adler-Golden. "Quick Atmospheric Correction Code: Algorithm Description and Recent Upgrades." Optical Engineering 51, No. 11 (2012): 111719-1 to 111719-11.

It contains the following enhancements to improve the accuracy of atmospheric correction:

  • Applies mud filtering to exclude highly structured materials.
  • Selects endmembers based on a small subset of available bands for most sensors. When a sensor spans both the visible and NIR-SWIR spectral regions, the algorithm excludes bands in the visible region.
  • Constrains the gain curve to be constant for wavelengths below 650 nm.
  • Suppresses the effects of dense vegetation.
  • Removes cloud endmembers for hyperspectral sensors with 940 to 1020 nm water absorption bands.

QUAC also works with images where pixels are masked out or set to NoData, NaN, or Infinity.


A higher-resolution version of the GMTED2010 (7.5 arc seconds) is available for download from the Exelis VIS website. We recommend using this version for RPC Orthorectification and automatic tie point generation in Image Registration because it will significantly improve the accuracy of the results. See the "GMTED2010 Overview" topic in ENVI Help for details.

New Spectral Indices

The Normalized Difference Mud Index (NDMI) highlights muddy or shallow-water pixels. This index was originally designed as a filter to exclude those pixels and to improve the accuracy of QUick Atmospheric Correction (QUAC)®.

The Modified Normalized Difference Water Index (MNDWI) enhances open water features while suppressing noise from built-up land, vegetation, and soil. Xu (2006) reported that the MNDWI produced better results than the Normalized Difference Water Index originally developed by McFeeters (1996) in enhancing and extracting water from a background that is dominated by built-up land areas.

The Spectral Indices tool now lists only the spectral indices that are available to compute from an input raster, based on its wavelength metadata. It previously listed all spectral indices, then issued an error message if you selected any that could not be computed for the input raster.

User Interface

Numerous performance enhancements have been included in this release, improving the speed and efficiency of ENVI when working with multiple datasets and raster series animation.

ENVI imagery can now be saved to Geospatial PDF files. Select File > Chip View To > Geospatial PDF to capture all georeferenced data layers displayed in the current view, or use File > Export View To > Geospatial PDF to select and export entire georeferenced raster layers.

Use the Regrid Raster Series tool (under the Spatiotemporal Analysis folder in the Toolbox) to define a custom grid and to regrid a raster series to it. A custom grid definition is a combination of a coordinate system, spatial extent, pixel size, number of rows and columns, and/or tie-point pixel and map coordinates.

Right-click on the Classes folder of an ENVI classification image and select Edit Class Names and Colors to edit the default names and colors of individual classes.

The Clump Classes and Sieve Classes dialogs allow you to preview processing results.

The Edit ENVI Header dialog has been replaced by the Set Raster Metadata dialog. Use this to edit the values of ENVI header fields and to save the results to an ENVI header file. In the Toolbox, select Raster Management > Edit ENVI Header to access the Set Raster Metadata tool.

The Jagwire product, available from Exelis VIS, provides a server that streams imagery and video for display and analysis. Use the redesigned and simplified Remote Connection Manager to connect to Jagwire servers, to perform spatial and time queries on their contents, and to open raster data that represents properties of geographic locations.

The File Selection dialog now includes buttons for subsetting by raster, by vector, by region of interest (ROI), or by map coordinates. Click the Spatial Subset button in the File Selection dialog to access these options.

The File > Save As menu option now includes options for creating a masked raster file. A mask can be defined from another raster, a vector, or one or more ROIs. Click the Mask button in the File Selection dialog to access these options.

The ENVI LiDAR application has been merged into ENVI. To open the ENVI LiDAR window select LiDAR > Launch ENVI LiDAR from the Toolbox, or select Display > ENVI LiDAR from the ENVI menu bar.

Analyze data over time with a spatiotemporal Series Profile. From the main menu, select Display > Profiles > Series to launch the plot window.

ENVI profiles now provide adjustable smoothing to plotted data. Select Options > Curve Smoothing to display the slider control.


ENVIQUACTask and ENVI_QUAC_DOIT were updated to the latest algorithm from Spectral Sciences, Inc., documented in the following reference:

Bernstein, L.S., X. Jin, B. Grebor, and S. Adler-Golden. "Quick Atmospheric Correction Code: Algorithm Description and Recent Upgrades." Optical Engineering 51, No. 11 (2012): 111719-1 to 111719-11.

Known Issues

ENVI-70066 Opening two GF-1 WFV images results in image artifacts
Opening two Gaofen-1 images in the same view results in data gaps. Workaround: Display multiple Gaofen-1 images in separate views.
ENVI-70110 Georeferencing from GLT produces holes in a south polar stereographic projection
When using Latitude/Longitude bands to create a geographic lookup table (GLT), images geogreferenced using the GLT in a southern hemisphere polar stereographic projection contain holes near their center.
ENVI-70139 Vector layer is hidden temporarily on "Accept" while animating a raster series
If you draw a polygon vector layer and accept it while a raster series is animating, the polygon layer disappears. Workaround: Pause the animation between Accept operations, or step through the series one frame at a time while editing the vector layer.
LIDAR-68971 GDAL cannot create JPEG output because neither canCreate nor canCopy is supported
A jpeg orthophoto cannot be generated when the export projection is set to Lat/Lon. Workaround: 1) Use an export projection other than Lat/Lon, 2) Use a working image type (TIF, ENVI).
LIDAR-69052 When using arbitrary coordinates, ENVI LiDAR cannot export products using units of feet
When generating products, please ensure that Units are set to Meters under the Export Coordinate System section. To avoid this issue, please select the correct projection for your data at project creation time.

Backward-Compatibility Notes

Partial strings are no longer allowed for the TaskName argument of ENVITask because of the growing number of tasks with common strings. For example, you could enter the following at the IDL command line in ENVI 5.2 SP1 and earlier:

IDL> e = ENVI()
IDL> task = ENVITask('iso')

This would assign the task variable to ENVIISODATAClassificationTask. Now it issues an error message but also provides the tasks that contain the partial string.
