Detect line segments in raster
This application detects locally straight contours in a image. It is based on Burns, Hanson, and Riseman method and use an a contrario validation approach (Desolneux, Moisan, and Morel). The algorithm was published by Rafael Gromponevon Gioi, Jérémie Jakubowicz, Jean-Michel Morel and Gregory Randall. The given approach computes gradient and level lines of the image and detects aligned points in line support region. The application allows exporting the detected lines in a vector data.
This application has several output images and supports “multi-writing”. Instead of computing and writing each image independently, the streamed image blocks are written in a synchronous way for each output. The output images will be computed strip by strip, using the available RAM to compute the strip size, and a user defined streaming mode can be specified using the streaming extended filenames (type, mode and value). Note that multi-writing can be disabled using the multi-write extended filename option: &multiwrite=false, in this case the output images will be written one by one. Note that multi-writing is not supported for MPI writers.
- Input Image
- Input image on which lines will be detected.
- Output Detected lines
- Output detected line segments (vector data).
This group of parameters allows managing elevation values. Supported formats are SRTM, DTED or any geotiff. DownloadSRTMTiles application could be a useful tool to list/download tiles related to a product.
This parameter allows selecting a directory containing Digital Elevation Model files. Note that this directory should contain only DEM files. Unexpected behaviour might occurs if other images are found in this directory.
-elev.geoid filename [dtype]
Use a geoid grid to get the height above the ellipsoid in case there is no DEM available, no coverage for some points or pixels with no_data in the DEM tiles. A version of the geoid can be found on the OTB website(https://gitlab.orfeo-toolbox.org/orfeotoolbox/otb-data/blob/master/Input/DEM/egm96.grd).
-elev.default float Default value: 0
This parameter allows setting the default height above ellipsoid when there is no DEM available, no coverage for some points or pixels with no_data in the DEM tiles, and no geoid file has been set. This is also used by some application as an average elevation value.
No rescaling in [0, 255]
-norescale bool Default value: false
By default, the input image amplitude is rescaled between [0,255]. Turn on this parameter to skip rescaling
Available RAM (MB)
-ram int Default value: 256
Available memory for processing (in MB).
From the command-line:
otbcli_LineSegmentDetection -in QB_Suburb.png -out LineSegmentDetection.shp
import otbApplication app = otbApplication.Registry.CreateApplication("LineSegmentDetection") app.SetParameterString("in", "QB_Suburb.png") app.SetParameterString("out", "LineSegmentDetection.shp") app.ExecuteAndWriteOutput()
