The Altair Community is migrating to a new platform to provide a better experience for you. The RapidMiner Community will merge with the Altair Community at the same time. In preparation for the migration, both communities are on read-only mode from July 15th - July 24th, 2024. Technical support via cases will continue to work as is.

    Hi, Vaclav,
    I know nothing about image data mining, but I would like to know your opinion - is image mining extension suitable for some analysis of the aerial photos - e.g. identification of the land use, maybe also other things...?

    I don't know, how images looks like and what you want to detect. For example you want detect water, filed and urban, than I think, it is suitable. For more difficult or special task will maybe be needed new feature extraction operators...

    There are few general steps which you must walk through:

    1) preprocessing - histogram normalize, resize, denoising etc.
    2) create mask - manually select regions which you want to detect
    3) generate example set - get features from segment or points + label from mask
    4) train model - maybe some optimizations...
    5) test model

    Dear BK,
    I can only agree with the lack of manuals on image processing topics using rapidminer. I know, this is very time consuming. A solution could be to publish more project examples related to this topic on myexperiment or similar sites. I hope the message wil be read by those colleagues.
