ENVI

Bash Shell Script Example

Bash Shell Script Example

This example creates a Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) image from an input QuickBird image, by invoking envitaskengine through a shell script.

  1. Start a terminal window.
  2. Create a scratch directory with write permission, where any temporary output can be written. Change to that directory:
  3. mkdir ~/sandbox
    cd ~/sandbox
  4. Run the script with the required arguments, as follows. You should run the script from the directory that has write permission. An NDVI image will be created in the sandbox directory in your home space.
  5. If arguments contain spaces, then you may need to add double quotes around them. If you want to use the ~ symbol, then double quotes are unnecessary.

    /usr/local/harris/idl/examples/taskengine/example_spectral_index.sh /usr/local/harris/envi/data/qb_boulder_msi "Normalized Difference Vegetation Index" ~/sandbox/ndvi.dat

Copy of Script

Here is a copy of the example_spectral_index.sh script. Use this as a template for writing your own script, changing the arguments as needed.

   echo "  ./example_spectral_index.sh \"/data/input.dat\" \"Normalized Difference Vegetation Index\" \"/data/output.dat\""
