The ArcGIS Image Analyst extension provides tools with which to analyze imagery data.
The capabilities of Image Analyst are grouped into categories of related functionality. Knowing the categories will help you identify the tool to use. The table below lists the Image Analyst toolsets with a description of the capabilities offered by the tools in each.
Image Analyst toolsets
The functional categories of Image Analyst are identified below.
The Change Detection toolset contains a tool that performs change detection between two raster datasets.
The Deep Learning toolset contains tools to detect specific features in an image or to classify pixels in a raster dataset.
The Extraction toolset allows you to extract a subset of pixels from a raster by the pixels' attributes or their spatial location.
Map Algebra is a way to perform spatial analysis by creating expressions in an algebraic language. With the Raster Calculator tool, you can easily create and run Map Algebra expressions that output a raster dataset.
The Math toolset contains tools that perform mathematical operations on rasters.
The tools are grouped into four main categories:
The Motion Imagery toolset contains tools for managing, processing, and analyzing motion imagery, including full motion video data.
The tools in the Multidimensional Analysis toolset allow you to perform analysis on scientific data across multiple variables and dimensions.
With the Overlay analysis toolset you can weight and overlay several rasters to create a single summary raster result.
With the segmentation and classification tools, you can prepare segmented rasters to use in creating classified raster datasets.
The statistical tools perform statistical operations on raster data.
