New Features and Improvements

Revised Graphical User Interface

We have improved the Genie Pro GUI with new viewing options and tools to make Genie Pro even more user friendly. You can now add shapefiles to populate a training set for a class, move classes up and down, and see how many training and results pixels belong to each class. The tool pane now  breaks away so you can keep it close to you as you create and revise your training. Navigation is easier with natural, interactive mouse control for pan and zoom, similar to other popular image viewing programs.  We've also optimized the working area so that you can see as much of your image as possible.

Looking for Specific Directional Elements in your Image?

A new capability we added for this version are orientation-sensitive operators for detection of vertical features in oblique imagery.  Genie Pro now allows you to ingest and store the "up-angle" and a "shadow angle" for an image, as well as use that information to arrive at solutions. A simple interface allows you to measure and enter the angle metadata.  New special operators and grammar files allow the information to be used in your solutions.   

Additional Image Processing Operators

A selection of new image processing operators was added to Genie Pro's repertoire, providing performance improvements and additional flexibility in generating solutions. Four new spectral operators were added, including minBand, maxBand, weightedBlendBinary and weightedBlendTernary. Six new spatial operators include LoG, Median, centerOfMass, localMinima, localMaxima and cornerFAST. In addition new oriented operators were added to utilize the new vertical object detection capabilities and include translate, orientedEdge and orientedLine.

Improved Dynamic Range Handling

In past versions, it was sometimes difficult to apply solutions to images where the dynamic range was different from the original image.  We have revamped the handling of the input dynamic range of images both as they are trained and as results are produced from a solution on any image.  We are seeing much better transferability of solutions to other images, including, for example, the ability to successfully apply a solution generated with an 8-bit image to a 16-bit image and vice versa.

Updated Grammar Files

The grammar files have been updated to take advantage of new operators and to improve results. Also, new grammar files that support the new orientation-sensitive attributes are included.

Pixel Count in Results Image

Genie Pro will now give you pixel counts for the results overlay in the view pane. Along with the total number of training pixels in the training overlay, you will also see the pixel counts for all portions of the image for which results have been generated for the results overlay.

New Evolutionary Process

We have developed a more streamlined process for our evolutionary algorithm development. Results in convergence of a solution more rapidly.
