Grid Based Image Resampling

Resamples an image according to a resampling grid

Detailed description

This application allows performing image resampling from an input resampling grid.


This section describes in details the parameters available for this application. Table [1] presents a summary of these parameters and the parameters keys to be used in command-line and programming languages. Application key is GridBasedImageResampling .

[Input and output data]: This group of parameters allows setting the input and output images.

  • Input image: The input image to resample.
  • Output Image: The resampled output image.

[Resampling grid parameters]

  • Input resampling grid: The resampling grid.
  • Grid Type: allows one to choose between two grid types. Available choices are:
  • Displacement grid: $G(x_out,y_out) = (x_in-x_out, y_in-y_out)$: A deformation grid contains at each grid position the offset to apply to this position in order to get to the corresponding point in the input image to resample.
  • Localisation grid: $G(x_out,y_out) = (x_in, y_in)$: A localisation grid contains at each grid position the corresponding position in the input image to resample.

[Output Image parameters]: Parameters of the output image.

  • Upper Left X: X Coordinate of the upper-left pixel of the output resampled image.
  • Upper Left Y: Y Coordinate of the upper-left pixel of the output resampled image.
  • Size X: Size of the output resampled image along X (in pixels).
  • Size Y: Size of the output resampled image along Y (in pixels).
  • Pixel Size X: Size of each pixel along X axis.
  • Pixel Size Y: Size of each pixel along Y axis.
  • Default value: The default value to give to pixel that falls outside of the input image.

Interpolation: This group of parameters allows one to define how the input image will be interpolated during resampling. Available choices are:

  • Nearest Neighbor interpolation: Nearest neighbor interpolation leads to poor image quality, but it is very fast.
  • Linear interpolation: Linear interpolation leads to average image quality but is quite fast.
  • Bicubic interpolation
  • Radius for bicubic interpolation: This parameter allows controlling the size of the bicubic interpolation filter. If the target pixel size is higher than the input pixel size, increasing this parameter will reduce aliasing artifacts.

Available RAM (Mb): Available memory for processing (in MB).

To run this example in command-line, use the following:

otbcli_GridBasedImageResampling ROI_IKO_PAN_LesHalles_sub.tif -io.out ROI_IKO_PAN_LesHalles_sub_resampled.tif uint8 ROI_IKO_PAN_LesHalles_sub_deformation_field.tif -out.sizex 256 -out.sizey 256 -grid.type def

To run this example from Python, use the following code snippet:


# Import the otb applications package
import otbApplication

# The following line creates an instance of the GridBasedImageResampling application
GridBasedImageResampling = otbApplication.Registry.CreateApplication("GridBasedImageResampling")

# The following lines set all the application parameters:
GridBasedImageResampling.SetParameterString("", "ROI_IKO_PAN_LesHalles_sub.tif")

GridBasedImageResampling.SetParameterString("io.out", "ROI_IKO_PAN_LesHalles_sub_resampled.tif")
GridBasedImageResampling.SetParameterOutputImagePixelType("io.out", 1)

GridBasedImageResampling.SetParameterString("", "ROI_IKO_PAN_LesHalles_sub_deformation_field.tif")

GridBasedImageResampling.SetParameterInt("out.sizex", 256)

GridBasedImageResampling.SetParameterInt("out.sizey", 256)


# The following line execute the application
