i.cca is an image processing program that takes from two to eight
(raster) band files and a signature file, and outputs the same number of
raster band files transformed to provide maximum separability of the
categories indicated by the signatures. This implementation of the
canonical components transformation is based on the algorithm contained in
the LAS image
processing system. CCA is also known as "Canonical components
Typically the user will use the
program to collect a set of signatures and then pass those
signatures along with the raster band files to
i.cca. The raster band file names are specified
on the command line by giving the group and subgroup that
were used to collect the signatures.
The output raster map names are built by appending a ".1",
".2", etc. to the output raster map name specified on the
- Name of the imagery group
to which the 2 to 8 raster band files used belong.
- Name of the imagery
subgroup to which the 2 to 8 raster band files used
- Name of an ASCII file containing spectral signatures.
- Output raster file prefix name. The output raster map
layer names are built by appending a ".1", ".2", etc. onto
the output name specified by the user.
i.cca respects the current geographic region definition
and the current mask setting while performing the transformation.
