Pixelblender features & tools
Radiometry harmonization
Area of interest
Set your area of interest or exclude data, e.g. cloudy areas, thanks to dataset frames, i.e. bounding polygon.
Homogeneous input images can be grouped by families. It allows PixelBlender to keep these images homogeneous and speed-up computational processes.
Global correction
PixelBlender harmonizes several images by computing a global model for each image. This model can be applied to the images afterward, regardless of the images resolution. Thanks to the PixelBlender's GPU accelerated engine, model computation is very fast.
Image Z order
Set image Z orders to manage image visibility in the output mosaic.
Seamless results
While exporting data, PixelBlender blends image borders with state-of-the-art algorithms to provide seamless results.
Use a reference
PixelBlender offers you to compute global corrections towards a reference imagery. This is the ideal way to integrate high resolution imagery into a global database.
