ENVILabelEntropyTextureTask

ENVILabelEntropyTextureTask

This task computes first-order entropy texture metrics on the label bands of a rank-strength-texture raster. These metrics are useful for cloud detection and feature extraction.

The virtual raster associated with this task is ENVILabelEntropyTextureRaster.

Example


This example computes label entropy texture from a multispectral raster and displays the first label entropy band.

; 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)
 
; Get the task from the catalog of ENVITasks
Task = ENVITask('LabelEntropyTexture')
 
; Define inputs
Task.INPUT_RASTER = Raster
 
; Run the task
Task.Execute
 
; Get the collection of data objects currently available in the Data Manager
DataColl = e.Data
 
; Add the output to the Data Manager
DataColl.Add, Task.OUTPUT_RASTER
 
; Display each band of the entropy image in a separate view
View1 = e.GetView()
Layer1 = View1.CreateLayer(Task.OUTPUT_RASTER, BANDS=[0], $
  NAME='Label entropy for band 1')
 
View2 = e.CreateView()
Layer2 = View2.CreateLayer(Task.OUTPUT_RASTER, BANDS=[1], $
  NAME='Label entropy for band 2')
 
View3 = e.CreateView()
Layer3 = View3.CreateLayer(Task.OUTPUT_RASTER, BANDS=[2], $
  NAME='Label entropy for band 3')
 
View4 = e.CreateView()
Layer4 = View4.CreateLayer(Task.OUTPUT_RASTER, BANDS=[3], $
  NAME='Label entropy for band 4')
 
; Create a geographic and zoom link for all views
View1.GeoLink, /LINK_ALL, /ZOOM_LINK

Syntax


Result = ENVITask('LabelEntropyTexture')

Input properties (Set, Get): INPUT_RASTER, KERNEL_SIZE, OUTPUT_RASTER_URI

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:

INPUT_RASTER (required)

Specify the input ENVIRaster. This routine accepts an image with any number of bands.

KERNEL_SIZE (optional)

Specify a two-element array [n,m] as the kernel size, where n is the number of columns and m is the number of rows. The values must be odd and at least 3, for example [3,3].

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 to export the associated OUTPUT_RASTER.

  • If you set this property to an asterisk symbol (*), the output raster will be virtual and not written to disk.
  • If you do not specify this property, or set it to an exclamation symbol (!), a temporary file will be created.

Version History


ENVI 5.4

Introduced

ENVI 5.5

OUTPUT_RASTER_URI now supports '*', which allows OUTPUT_RASTER to be virtual output.

API Version


3.3
