    NTIA's interactive broadband map highlights the digital divide

    By Lurker,
    The quality and cost of broadband remain issues for households across the US, and the Biden administration wants to draw attention to that unfortunate reality. The National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) has published what it says is the first interactive public map detailing the "digital divide" in broadband access. You'll not only see areas where broadband speeds fall below official targets (25Mbps down and 3Mbps up), but correlate that with high-poverty areas. You ca

    Managing earthquakes triggered by oil production: Scientists demonstrate safer wastewater disposal method

    By Lurker,
    When humans pump large volumes of fluid into the ground, they can set off potentially damaging earthquakes, depending on the underlying geology. This has been the case in certain oil- and gas-producing regions, where wastewater, often mixed with oil, is disposed of by injecting it back into the ground—a process that has triggered sizable seismic events in recent years. Now MIT researchers, working with an interdisciplinary team of scientists from industry and academia, have developed a meth

    Landsat 7 End of Life Plans

    By Lurker,
    On February 7, 2017, the twentieth and final inclination (Delta-I) maneuver of Landsat 7 took place. (Delta-I maneuvers keep the spacecraft in the correct orbital position to ensure it maintains its 10:00 am ± 15 minutes mean local time (MLT) equatorial crossing.)  Landsat 7 reached its peak outermost inclination boundary of 10:14:58 MLT on August 11, 2017. Landsat 7 is now drifting in its inclination and will fall back to 09:15 am MLT by July 2021. The chart below illustrates the inclinati

    Mapping Shows Africa Has Plenty of Groundwater

    By Lurker,
    Many of Africa’s agricultural endeavors have long been tied to whims of the weather. When it rains, a country’s gross domestic product might soar. When it doesn’t rain, economies suffer. The reliance has been driven in part by the perception that dry, arid Africa has limited water resources. But a new study, years in the making, shows a different reality. As one South African scientist recently noted, if all the rainfall stopped today and for the next 100 years in Africa, there would still

    Rainfall becomes increasingly variable as climate warms

    By Lurker,
    Classification of precipitation change regimes based on changes in the precipitation mean state and variability. Shading indicates the ratio of change in precipitation variability and mean precipitation. Climate models predict that rainfall variability over wet regions globally will be greatly enhanced by global warming, causing wide swings between dry and wet conditions, according to a joint study by the Institute of Atmospheric Physics (IAP) of the Chinese Academy of Science

    • Interesting update!  I see they introduced IDL for VSCode as well, also an 'IDL Notebook'. I will give these new tools some time to mature before a proper test drive.  
    • Medicine of Envi 6 please!!!! 😇
    • Added support for data types: GRUS L1C, L2A - Axelspace micro-earth observation satellite ISIS3 - USGS Astrogeology ISIS Cube, Version 3 PDS4 -NASA Planetary Data System, Version 4 New Spectral Hourglass Workflow and N-Dimensional Visualizer   New Target Detection Workflow The Target Detection Workflow has been added to this release. Use the Target Detection Workflow to locate objects within hyperspectral or multispectral images that match the signatures of in-scene regions. The targets may be a material or mineral of interest, or man-made objects. New Dynamic Band Selection tool New Material Identification tool Updated and improved Endmember Collection tool New and updated ENVI Toolbox tools The following tools have been updated to use new ENVI Tasks: Adaptive Coherence Estimator Classification: A classification method derived from the Generalized Likelihood Ratio (GLR) approach. The ACE is invariant to relative scaling of input spectra and has a Constant False Alarm Rate (CFAR) with respect to such scaling. Constrained Energy Minimization Classification: A classification method that uses a specific constraint, CEM uses a finite impulse response (FIR) filter to pass through the desired target while minimizing its output energy resulting from a background other than the desired targets. Classification Smoothing: Removes speckling noise from a classification image. It uses majority analysis to change spurious pixels within a large single class to that class. Forward Minimum Noise Fraction: Performs a minimum noise fraction (MNF) transform to determine the inherent dimensionality of image data, to segregate noise in the data, and to reduce the computational requirements for subsequent processing. Inverse Minimum Noise Fraction: Transforms the bands from a previous Forward Minimum Noise Fraction to their original data space. Orthogonal Subspace Projection Classification: This classification method first designs an orthogonal subspace projector to eliminate the response of non-targets, then Matched Filter is applied to match the desired target from the data. Parallelepiped Classification: Performs a parallelepiped supervised classification which uses a simple decision rule to classify multispectral data. Spectral Information Divergence Classification: A spectral classification method that uses a divergence measure to match pixels to reference spectra. New and updated ENVI Tasks You can use these new ENVI Tasks to perform data-processing operations in your own ENVI+IDL programs: ConstrainedEnergyMinimization: Performs the Constrained Energy Minimization (CEM) target analysis. InverseMNFTransform: Transforms the bands from a previous Forward Minimum Noise Fraction to their original data space. MixtureTunedRuleRasterClassification: Applies threshold and infeasibility values and performs classification on mixture tuned rule raster. MixtureTunedTargetConstrainedInterferenceMinimizedFilter: Performs the Mixture Tuned Target-Constrained Interference-Minimized Filter (MTTCIMF) target analysis. NormalizedEuclideanDistanceClassification: Performs a Normalized Euclidean Distance (NED) supervised classification. OrthogonalSubspaceProjection: Performs the Orthogonal Subspace Projection (OSP) target analysis. ParallelepipedClassification: This task performs a parallelepiped supervised classification which uses a simple decision rule to classify multispectral data. RuleRasterClassification: Creates a classification raster by thresholding on each band of the raster. SpectralInformationDivergenceClassification: Performs the Spectral Information Divergence (SID) classification. SpectralSimilarityMapperClassification: Performs a Spectral Similarity Mapper (SSM) supervised classification. TargetConstrainedInterferenceMinimizedFilter: Performs the Target-Constrained Interference-Minimized Filter (TCIMF) target analysis.

    • some of file hosting known to use some kind of client software mandatory to download their file, like for example pan baidu or terrabox and many more, I tend to avoid those type of file hosting btw, there are already topic related to this software, here: I will close this topic
