Geospatial Learning Resources – An overview of the 2013 ENVI Rapid Learning Series

ENVI Rapid Learning SeriesHave you downloaded, or upgraded to, the latest version of ENVI? Are you just learning the new interface, or already a seasoned expert? No matter your experience level, if you’re an ENVI user then it’s worth viewing the ENVI Rapid Learning Series.

This series is a collection of short 30-minute webinars that address different technical aspects and application tips for using ENVI. Originally hosted live in the fall of 2013, the webinars are now available online to view at your convenience:

  • ENVI and ArcGIS Interoperability Tips “Learn best practices and tips for using ENVI to extract information from your imagery. Get new information, ask questions, become a better analyst.” (recorded 10/16/13)
  • Using NITF Data in ENVI “Learn best practices and tips for using NITF data with ENVI to extract information from your imagery. Get new information, ask questions, become a better analyst.” (recorded 10/23/13)
  • Image Transformations in ENVI “Join Tony Wolf as he explores how image transformations can provide unique insight into your data in ENVI. Learn how to use the display capabilities of ENVI to visually detect differences between image bands and help identify materials on the ground.” (recorded 10/30/13)
  • Working with Landsat 8 Data in ENVI “Learn how to use Landsat 8 cirrus band, quality assurance band, and thermal channels in ENVI for classification, NDVI studies, and much more.” (recorded 11/6/13)
  • Using NPP VIIRS Imagery in ENVI “Join Thomas Harris as he explores the newly developed support for NPP VIIRS in ENVI. By opening a dataset as an NPP VIIRS file type, the user is presented with an intuitive interface that makes visualizing the data and correcting the ‘bowtie’ effect a snap.” (recorded 11/13/13)
  • Georeference, Image Registration, Orthorectification “This webinar looks at how to geometrically correct data in ENVI for improved accuracy and analysis results. Join the ENVI team as we demo georeferencing, image registration, and orthorectification capabilities and answer questions from attendees.” (recorded 11/20/13)
  • An Introduction to ENVI LiDAR “This webinar takes a quick look at the ENVI LiDAR interface and demonstrates how to easily transform geo-referenced point-cloud LiDAR data into useful geographic information system (GIS) layers. ENVI LiDAR can automatically extract Digital Elevation Models (DEMs), Digital Surface Models (DSMs), contour lines, buildings, trees, and power lines from your raw point-cloud LiDAR data. This information can be exported in multiple formats and to 3D visual databases.” (recorded 11/27/13)
  • IDL for the Non-Programmer “This webinar highlights some of the tools available to ENVI and IDL users, which allow them to analyze data and extend ENVI. Learn where to access code snippets, detailed explanations of parameters, and demo data that comes with the ENVI + IDL install.” (recorded 12/4/13)
  • ENVI Services Engine: What is it? “This webinar takes a very basic look at ENVI capabilities at the server level. It shows diagrams depicting how web based analysis works, and shows some examples of JavaScript clients calling the ENVI Services Engine. Benefits of this type of technology include developing apps or web based clients to run analysis, running batch analysis on multiple datasets, and integrating ENVI image analysis into the Esri platform.” (recorded 12/11/13)
  • Atmospheric Correction “This webinar looks at the different types of Atmospheric Correction tools available in ENVI. It starts with a look at what Atmospheric Correction is used for, and when you and don’t need to apply it. Finally it gives a live look at QUAC and FLAASH and how to configure these tools to get the best information from your data.” (recorded 12/18/13)
