ENVIBinaryLTThresholdRaster

ENVIBinaryLTThresholdRaster

This function constructs an ENVIRaster from a source raster where pixel values below a specified threshold are set to 1 and all others are set to 0.

The result is a virtual raster, which has some additional considerations with regard to methods and properties. See Virtual Rasters for more information.

Example


; Start the application
e = ENVI()
 
; Open an input file
file = FILEPATH('qb_boulder_msi', ROOT_DIR=e.ROOT_DIR, $
  SUBDIRECTORY = ['data'])
raster = e.OpenRaster(file)
 
; Set the thresholds for each band
threshold = [250, 360, 270, 360]
rasterBinaryImage = ENVIBinaryLTThresholdRaster(raster, threshold)
 
; save it in ENVI raster format
newFile = e.GetTemporaryFilename()
rasterBinaryImage.Export, newFile, 'ENVI'
 
; Open the thresholded image
rasterBinaryImage = e.OpenRaster(newFile)
 
; Display the result
View = e.GetView()
Layer = View.CreateLayer(rasterBinaryImage)
Layer.Quick_Stretch = 'equalization'

Syntax


Result = ENVIBinaryLTThresholdRaster(Input_Raster, Threshold, ERROR=variable])

Return Value


This routine returns a reference to an ENVIRaster whose data type is Byte.

Arguments


Input_Raster

Specify the input ENVIRaster.

Threshold

Specify an array of threshold values (one per band). If the source raster only has one band, specify an array with one element.

Methods


This virtual raster inherits methods and properties from ENVIRaster; however the following methods will override the ENVIRaster methods:

Dehydrate

Hydrate

Keywords


ERROR

Set this keyword to a named variable that will contain any error message issued during execution of this routine. If no error occurs, the ERROR variable will be set to a null string (''). If an error occurs and the routine is a function, then the function result will be undefined.

When this keyword is not set and an error occurs, ENVI returns to the caller and execution halts. In this case, the error message is contained within !ERROR_STATE and can be caught using IDL's CATCH routine. See IDL Help for more information on !ERROR_STATE and CATCH.

See Manage Errors for more information on error handling in ENVI programming.

NAME

Specify a string that identifies the raster.
