Defense specific applications form the backbone of this course and allow the students to see how to use the software in military scenarios. (5 day class)

Learn To:

  • Understand basic multispectral theory
  • Create customized preferences within the software
  • Measure and annotate features on imagery
  • Understand image information and histograms
  • Use the Geospatial Light Table™ (GLT) to display multiple viewers, use thumbwheel enhancement capabilities, automatic roaming capabilities, and feature counting tools
  • Import various data formats
  • Recognize different military specific image and data types (NITF, RPF, CIB, CADRG,
    DTED, etc.)
  • Enhance imagery using radiometric, spatial, and spectral techniques
  • Mosaic images together to create a larger viewable area
  • Perform terrain categorization using unsupervised and supervised classification techniques
    to separate land cover types
  • Perform topographic analysis on terrain data (DTED), include creating shaded and
    painted reliefs
  • Create effective annotation layers and map compositions
  • Use the Global Retriever to catalog and query spatial data
  • Use Leica Photogrammetry Suite (LPS) to create block files for stereo imagery and producing Digital Elevation Models (DEMs)
  • Use Stereo Analyst to create 3D shapefiles and 3D model files from stereo imagery
