eCognition support for LiDAR and Windows extended in latest release

Munich, Germany / Alexandria, Virginia – April  6, 2010 – Definiens, the number one Enterprise Image Intelligence® company and developer of eCognition® software for geospatial analysis, today announced the launch of its latest software update for earth science professionals: eCognition 8.0.1. Among the highlights of the newest release are support for Microsoft Windows 7 Professional and LiDAR point clouds in LAS 1.2 format.

“This release is very much about supporting our core users in how they use eCognition,” says Ralph D. Humberg, VP Earth Sciences. “We’re proud to be running on the latest version of the world’s most popular operating system and offering support for the latest LiDAR file format. In doing so, we’ve taken another step to extend our commitment to the future of LiDAR and object-based image analysis.”

Direct access to point clouds in native LAS format opens up new possibilities for applying object-based analysis methods to solve LiDAR classification tasks. Current work includes classification of ground and non-ground features, extraction of building outlines, impervious surface analysis, detection of power lines and encroaching vegetation, as well as water flattening. The ability to leverage the unique capabilities of object-based image analysis, such as local context as well as feature shape and texture, allows for the automation of processes that have traditionally involved substantial manual interaction.
