The latest version features the use of ESRI’s ArcObjects environment to interact with the latest generation of ArcGIS software and data formats.

ERDAS IMAGINE V8.6, the latest version of Leica Geosystems’ geographic imaging software suite, features the use of ESRI’s ArcObjects environment to interact with the latest generation of ArcGIS software and data formats including the geodatabase. By using the ArcObjects environment, ERDAS IMAGINE and ArcGIS users have shared access to vector data sources.

ERDAS IMAGINE can access vector features from data formats such as ESRI’s personal geodatabase, enterprise geodatabase, and Vector Product Format (VPF), as well as from other sources such as the Geography Network, ESRI’s ArcIMS, and more. ERDAS IMAGINE has extended its existing IMAGINE vector format dynamic link library (DLL) to provide users with a single interface that can access all the above sources. Examples of the IMAGINE geodatabase support capabilities include the ability to:

  • Easily display fully attributed VPF data.
  • Use geodatabase features in a spatial model.
  • Define a classification training signature using a DXF polygon.
  • Edit and update features in a simple personal geodatabase and more.

As with other geodatabase DLL formats, ERDAS IMAGINE can access information from the Geography Network and ArcIMS as read-only data sources. Some of the other ERDAS IMAGINE read-only operations that now can be applied to data sources accessed by the geodatabase vector DLL are the abilities to display vectors on top of an image, include vectors in a map composition, and use features (points, lines, and polygons) in supervised classification.

In addition, ERDAS IMAGINE 8.6 now can access raster data stored in the enterprise geodatabase and ArcSDE. Once users connect to the database and an image layer is selected, it is treated like any other raster data source within the ERDAS IMAGINE interface.
