Your first experience at Tarawa atoll, Kiribati
nothing to do for now, just read below
Raw data
  • raw data is in /data/tarawa-full.tif 
    • use OpenEV to export it to /data/tarawa-full.pix

  • the -MakePIX/.... procedure takes its georeferencing from 
    • the -dB/...........argument
    • the -Mis/..........argument
    • the -Import/.... argument
  • the shapefiles need to be prepared over a backdrop image which is properly georeferenced.
  • OpenEV only writes 
    • .shp, .dbf and .shx
  • 4SM calls up shp2text in order to
    • read the shapefile
    • write a SHP.txt textfile
    • then proceed to use it as appropriate for
      • working out the geometry and georeferencing of the image subset
      • querrying a pixel
      • modeling a pixel
      • profiling : dynamic memory allocation allows for very long profiles
      • recoding of ROI in mask_SE
      • sampling of ROI
      • you name it!!!

  • No worries with this:
  • 4SM shall complain if you do not specify enough channels
    • And it does not hurt if you have more than enough.

The thing is:
For a N bands 16 bits raw image, you need 
  • N*U16 bands for raw 16U data
  • N*U8 bands for U8 scaled raw data
  • N*U8 bands for deglinted data
  • N*U8 bands for water column corrected data
  • Plus at least 14 U8 channels for various uses
That is at least 4*N + 14.

For a 3 bands U8 SPOT image,
  • that is at least 4*3+14=26 U8 channels
For a 4 bands U8 Landsat TM image
  • that is at least 4*4+14=30 U8 channels
For a 6 bands U16 Landsat  8 image
  • that is at least 4*6+14=38 U8 channels
channels 1, 2, 3
a spectral raw image subset, heavily glinted.
OpenEV pseudo-color pallets=====>>>>>
They are located in ./4sm.calls/pct=====>>>>>


this is the special effects mask

  • Blue:...........mSE=2 over open waters
  • Orange:.......mSE=3 in the lagoon
  • Red:.............mSE=4 in the lagoon
  • Brown:.........mSE=248 for lands areas
Please note that, over the orange area, 
 the higher foreshore is exposed,
therefore mapped as land 



with following codes 
  • Grey...........for clouds
  • Brown........for dryland
  • Dark Blue..for wZ=240: optically deep pixels
  • Blue............for WZ=1 where Depth is computed using Lbref[1] and band_1 alone
    • the ONE-BAND solution
  • Green.........for WZ=2 where Depths are computed using both band_1 and band_2
    • the RED solution
  • Red........... for WZ=3 where Depths were computed using band_1, band_2 and band_3 
    • the NIR solution

Smoothing Window Radius (kernel)

with following codes 
  • Black          No_smoothing on land, clouds, etc
  • Green         Radius=5......average of 81 pixels
  • Light Blue   Radius=4......average of ... pixels
  • Red             Radius=3......average of ... pixels
  • Yellow        Radius=2......average of 9 pixels
  • Pink            Radius=1......average of 5 pixels
Depths in decimeters, range 1-250 

with following codes 
  • Yellow   for non-marine areas
  • Shades of blue for depths  up to 25 meters
  • Deep blue for optically deep areas

Depths in decimeters
coded for screen display
of no interest here as the depth does not exceed 25 m
  • Yellow   for non-marine areas
  • Shades of blue then green for depths from 1 meter up to 25 meters
  • Pale green for optically deep waters

Average Bottom Reflectance  

 is scaled from 0 to 200

Bottom typing

not in use with SPOT XS images
.... channels 11, 12, 13, 14
are of no interest for a SPOT XS image

channels 15, 16, 17
  • channel 15 exhibits BPL pixels for the pair 1/2, i.e. for the Green vs Red pair
  • channel 16 exhibits BPL pixels for the pair 1/3 i.e. for the Green vs NIR pair
  • channel 17 exhibits BPL pixels for the pair 2/3 i.e. for the Red vs NIR pair
They are displayed here as a color composite
channels 18, 19, 20, 21
are void ,  available for future use
channels 22, 23, 24  

contain the smoothed/deglinted image  

a spectral image in NATURAL radiances,
HistEq enhancement

using -E.shp shapefile,
subwindow -E100/550/200/400
is not deglinted.

channels 25, 26, 2727
contain the water column corrected reflectance  

A spectral image, scaled from 0 to 250.
Of no interest for an image without a Blue band. 



Of no interest here
as depths do not exceed 15-20 m 
inside the lagoon. 

But this channel is used 
upon seatruthing
