Trimble eCognition version 9.0 Available now
for Advanced Geospatial Data Analysis
LOUISVILLE, Ky., March 28, 2014—Trimble (NASDAQ: TRMB) announced today the latest version of its eCognition® software for geospatial data analysis at the American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ASPRS) conference.
Trimble eCognition software is a powerful solution for the analysis and extraction of information from geospatial data collected via aerial, satellite and mobile mapping platforms. This new release simplifies and reduces the time taken to classify objects in imagery data sets using the new template matching function. With eCognition 9, users can define objects graphically to streamline the template creation process. These templates are used to automatically identify objects of interest in imagery.
In addition, remote sensing and Geographic Information System (GIS) professionals can now integrate data layers more efficiently through improved GIS tools within eCognition 9. These capabilities provide a framework for advanced analysis that allows professionals to use eCognition to resolve a larger range of geospatial queries and obtain more accurate results.
By extending eCognition 9.0 with spatial and contextual GIS data modeling capabilities, vector data can be managed and processed more efficiently. The new version of eCognition introduces computer vision based object detection capabilities which complements the existing knowledge-based and supervised classification modules.
“With the fast growth of imaging and remote sensing data collection, geospatial professionals need faster and simpler methods to analyze and extract meaningful information from the data,” said Alain Samaha, business area director of Trimble’s Geospatial Software Solutions Division. “eCognition 9 takes simplification and integration to a new level while augmenting the precision and accuracy of results. This opens the door to a wider range of applications across multiple industries.”
The eCognition 9 software is available now. The software is sold and licensed though Trimble’s eCognition and Geospatial distribution channels.
