StarSpan: A Tool for Fast Selective Pixel Extraction from Remotely Sensed Data
Entry ID: StarSpan

[ Get Service ]
[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: StarSpan is designed to bridge the raster and vector worlds of spatial analysis using fast algorithms for pixel level extraction from geometry features (points, lines, polygons). StarSpan generates databases of extracted pixel values (from one or a set of raster images), fused with the database attributes from the vector files. This allows a user to do statistical analysis of the pixel vs. attribute data in many existing packages and can greatly speed up classification training and testing.
