Change Detection

Hexagon Geospatial offers a semi-automated Change Detection workflow using the ERDAS IMAGINE product that automates change detection at the parcel, polygonal, or grid level.  Through the use of old and new image data, this tool provides calculated likelihood of change based on spectral values.  It can detect changes representing swimming pools, parking lots, roof differences, vegetation differences, or ground cover differences.  Thus, this product can be used in detecting property changes due to improvement, environmental changes over time, or changes due to natural disasters. Users review the parcels, polygons, or grids from a queued list that is ordered by likelihood of change.  Therefore those parcels, polygons, or grids with the most relevant changes can be focused on first.  Attendees can participate in the workshop with an installation of IMAGINE 2015*.Come join us for a workshop on this exciting new technology.

Please contact Justin.byrd@hexagongeospatial.com to arrange an installation of IMAGINE 2015 for this workshop.
