BERLIN, Oct. 7, 2014—Trimble TRMB, -1.47% announced today eCognition Essentials, a new software solution for geospatial and remote sensing professionals performing land cover mapping tasks using satellite imagery. eCognition Essentials offers an intuitive image analysis solution that allows users of all levels to quickly produce high-quality, Geographic Information System (GIS)-ready deliverables.
The announcement was made today at INTERGEO 2014, the world’s largest conference on geodesy, geoinformatics and land management.
Leveraging core eCognition software technology, eCognition Essentials is easy to use with its simplified and intuitive interface. eCognition Essentials reduces analysis error as it applies predefined and structured rules to analyze and transform imagery data into relevant geospatial information. The new automated image analysis functions—such as image segmentation or sample-based classification—combined with a set of interactive tools for quality control offer users a streamlined workflow for quicker project turnaround times.
“eCognition Essentials resolves a key challenge with object-based image analysis by simplifying and streamlining the workflow to quickly extract geospatial information from remote sensing imagery,” said Alain Samaha, business area director of GIS and Software for Trimble’s Geospatial Division. “Remote sensing and GIS analysts can use this software with minimal training, freeing their time to focus on the interpretation of results and decision making.”
eCognition Essentials is available now through Trimble’s eCognition Distribution Channel. For more information, visit: www.eCognition.com.
