New Features

  • The Crop Count tool runs faster with large images.
  • The Crops to Shapefile tool was renamed to Convert Crops to Shapefile.
  • The Percent Overlap parameter has been optimized for faster speed in the Crop Count tool.
  • Use the Create Crop Location Grid tool to estimate crop locations in an image, based on three specified points. The tool creates a classification image with circles that represent crops. It is best used in fields where crops are equally spaced and sized. The associated API task is ENVIAgCreateAndRasterizeCropLocationGridTask.
  • Use the Find Rows and Remove Outliers tool to identify individual rows in a field, while removing outliers from the crop count result.
  • Use the Find Crop Gaps tool to find the locations of missing crops within a row.

New ENVITasks

Task Description
ENVIAgCreateAndRasterizeCropLocationGridTask This task estimates the crop count from a raster and a grid derived from three input points, and it creates a classification raster with their locations.
ENVIAgFindAndRasterizeCropGapsTask This task finds gaps with a row of an associated ENVIAgCrop object.
ENVIAgFindRowsAndRemoveOutliersTask This task finds rows within an ENVIAgCrops object, removes crops that are outside the rows, and creates a classification raster with the remaining crop locations and sizes.

Fixed Issues

CS-5 The Percent Overlap parameter in the Crop Count tool did not work in the user interface or API.
