ClassificationSieving

ENVIClassificationSievingTask

This task removes isolated classified pixels using blob grouping. Low pass or other types of filtering could be used to remove these areas, but the class information would be contaminated by adjacent class codes. The sieve classes method looks at the neighboring four or eight pixels to determine if a pixel is grouped with pixels of the same class. If the number of pixels in a class that are grouped is less than the value that you enter, those pixels will be removed from the class. When pixels are removed from a class using sieving, black pixels (unclassified) will be left. Use ENVIClassificationClumpingTask to remove the black pixels.

Example


The following example performs an unsupervised classification, followed by a sieving, then clumping operation to remove the remaining black pixels.

; Start the application
e = ENVI()
 
; Open an input file
File = Filepath('qb_boulder_msi', Subdir=['data'], $
  Root_Dir=e.Root_Dir)
Raster = e.OpenRaster(File)
 
; Process a spatial subset
Subset = ENVISubsetRaster(Raster, Sub_Rect=[600,200,799,399])
 
; Create a classification ENVIRaster
ClassTask = ENVITask('ISODATAClassification')
ClassTask.INPUT_RASTER = Subset
ClassTask.OUTPUT_RASTER_URI = e.GetTemporaryFilename()
ClassTask.Execute
 
; Get the collection of data objects currently available in the Data Manager
DataColl = e.Data
 
; Add the class image to the Data Manager
DataColl.Add, ClassTask.OUTPUT_RASTER
 
; Display the result
View1 = e.GetView()
Layer1 = View1.CreateLayer(ClassTask.OUTPUT_RASTER)
 
; Run the sieving task
SievingTask = ENVITask('ClassificationSieving')
SievingTask.INPUT_RASTER = ClassTask.OUTPUT_RASTER
SievingTask.OUTPUT_RASTER_URI = e.GetTemporaryFilename()
SievingTask.Execute
 
; Run the clumping task
ClumpingTask = ENVITask('ClassificationClumping')
ClumpingTask.INPUT_RASTER = SievingTask.OUTPUT_RASTER
ClumpingTask.OUTPUT_RASTER_URI = e.GetTemporaryFilename()
ClumpingTask.Execute
 
; Add the output to the Data Manager
DataColl.Add, ClumpingTask.OUTPUT_RASTER
 
; Display the result
Layer2 = View1.CreateLayer(ClumpingTask.OUTPUT_RASTER)
 
; Flicker between the original classification and the result
; after clumping
Portal = View1.CreatePortal()
Portal.Animate, 2.0, /FLICKER

Syntax


Result = ENVITask('ClassificationSieving')

Input properties (Set, Get): CLASS_ORDER, INPUT_RASTER, MINIMUM_SIZE, OUTPUT_RASTER_URI, PIXEL_CONNECTIVITY

Output properties (Get only): OUTPUT_RASTER

Properties marked as "Set" are those that you can set to specific values. You can also retrieve their current values any time. Properties marked as "Get" are those whose values you can retrieve but not set.

TAGS

This task also contains the following properties:

CLASS_ORDER (optional)

Specify the order of class names in which sieving is applied to the classification image. If you do not specify this property, the classes are processed from first to last.

INPUT_RASTER (required)

Specify a raster on which to perform classification clumping.

MINIMUM_SIZE (optional)

Specify the minimum size of a blob (in pixels) to keep. The default value is two pixels.

OUTPUT_RASTER

This is a reference to the output raster of filetype ENVI.

OUTPUT_RASTER_URI (optional)

Specify a string with the fully qualified filename and path of the associated OUTPUT_RASTER. If you do not specify this property, or set it to an exclamation symbol (!), a temporary file will be created.

PIXEL_CONNECTIVITY (optional)

Specify a value of 4 (four-neighbor) or 8 (eight-neighbor) indicating the regions around a pixel that are searched, for continuous blobs. The default is 8.
