Trimble introduces a new product from the eCognition stable. Trimble eCognition Essentials, based on the functionality of the basic package, i.e. eCognition Developer, at a very competitive price offers rich functionality enclosed in a friendly and intuitive graphical interface. It focuses on ease of use and speed of obtaining results, using proven object-oriented classification mechanisms.
eCognition Essentials is a fully stand-alone tool enabling the analysis of image data based on a patented image segmentation algorithm and its classification based on indicated test fields and using defined classification algorithms. The optimized program interface guides the user step by step through the analysis, displaying functions that are appropriate at a given moment.
An example analysis scheme looks like this:
create and prepare a project
perform classification (threshold values, nearest neighbor method, SVM, CART etc…)
edit and improve results
eCognition Essentials is a tool for both professionals and people without expert experience in image data analysis.
