The eCognition Competition
How GeoSpatial are You?
Trimble in association with Amigo Optima brings the opportunity to unleash your capabilities in geospatial technologies and show the world what is beyond conventional geospatial methodologies.

While remote sensing has made enormous progress over recent years and a variety of sensors now deliver medium and high resolution data on an operational basis, a vast majority of applications still rely on basic image processing concepts developed in the early 70s: classification of single pixels in a multi-dimensional feature space. Using spatial concepts and in combination with the algorithms it is proven that much more information can be extracted from the available data. With the advent of high-resolution satellite imagery, the increasing use of airborne digital data and radar data the need for context-based and object-oriented image processing is increasing. In a case study, ‘traditional’ pixel based classification methods and context-based classification methods are compared. Experiences are encouraging and it is hypothesized that object based image analysis will trigger new developments towards full integration of GIS and remote sensing functions.

About Trimble eCognition
eCognition Developer is a powerful development environment for object-based image analysis. It is used in earth sciences to develop rule sets (or applications for eCognition Architect) for the automatic analysis of remote sensing data.eCognition sets new standards in automated image analysis. Its comprehensive possibilities and the almost unlimited usability of object properties as well as the combination of processes offer numerous new options for intelligent image understanding. It is a fact that eCognition is a significant step in analyzing and understanding complex image content.
