Use this procedure to combine classes in ENVI Classic classification images.
ENVI_DOIT, 'COM_CLASS_DOIT', COMB_LUT=array, DIMS=array, FID=file ID, /IN_MEMORY, OUT_NAME=string, R_FID=variable, /REMOVE_EMPTY
Use this keyword to specify an array of long integers indicating the output class for each input class. COMB_LUT has num_classes elements.
For example, to map class 0 to 0, class 1 to 0, class 2 to 3, and class 3 to 2, set the keyword as follows:
comb_lut = [0, 0, 3, 2]
The “dimensions” keyword is a five-element array of long integers that defines the spatial subset (of a file or array) to use for processing. Nearly every time you specify the keyword FID, you must also specify the spatial subset of the corresponding file (even if the entire file, with no spatial subsetting, is to be processed).
- DIMS: A pointer to an open ROI; use only in cases where ROIs define the spatial subset. Otherwise, set to -1L.
- DIMS: The starting sample number. The first x pixel is 0.
- DIMS: The ending sample number
- DIMS: The starting line number. The first y pixel is 0.
- DIMS: The ending line number
To process an entire file (with no spatial subsetting), define DIMS as shown in the following code example. This example assumes you have already opened a file using ENVI_SELECT or ENVI_PICKFILE:
envi_file_query, fid, dims=dims
The file ID (FID) is a long-integer scalar with a value greater than 0. An invalid FID has a value of -1. The FID is provided as a named variable by any routine used to open or select a file. Often, the FID is returned from the keyword R_FID in the ENVIRasterToFID routine. Files are processed by referring to their FIDs. If you work directly with the file in IDL, the FID is not equivalent to a logical unit number (LUN).
Set this keyword to specify that output should be stored in memory. If you do not set IN_MEMORY, output will be stored on disk and you must specify OUT_NAME (see below).
Use this keyword to specify a string with the output filename for the resulting data. If you set the keyword IN_MEMORY, you do not need to specify OUT_NAME.
ENVI Classic library routines that result in new images also have an R_FID, or “returned FID.” This is simply a named variable containing the file ID to access the processed data. Specifying this keyword saves you the step of opening the new file from disk.
Set this keyword to remove empty classes after combining. If empty classes are not removed, one or more classes with no elements may exist in the output image. The default is to leave the empty classes.
