NAME

i.oif - Calculates Optimum-Index-Factor table for LANDSAT TM bands 1-5, & 7

KEYWORDS

raster, imagery, statistics

SYNOPSIS

i.oif
i.oif help
i.oif [-g] image1=string image2=string image3=string image4=string image5=string image7=string [--verbose] [--quiet]

Flags:

-g
Print in shell script style
--verbose
Verbose module output
--quiet
Quiet module output

Parameters:

image1=string
LANDSAT TM band 1.
image2=string
LANDSAT TM band 2.
image3=string
LANDSAT TM band 3.
image4=string
LANDSAT TM band 4.
image5=string
LANDSAT TM band 5.
image7=string
LANDSAT TM band 7.

DESCRIPTION

i.oif calculates the Optimum Index Factor for LANDSAT TM bands 1,2,3,4,5 and 7.

The Optimum Index Factor is calculated to determine the band combination which shows the maximum information when combined into a composite image. The bands comprising the highest scoring combination from i.oif are used as the three color channels required for d.rgb or r.composite.

The analysis is saved to a file in the current directory called "i.oif.result".

NOTES

Landsat TM: Colour Composites in BGR order as important Landsat TM band combinations (example: 234 in BGR order means: B=2, G=3, R=4):

EXAMPLE

North Carolina sample dataset:
g.region rast=lsat7_2002_10 -p
i.oif image1=lsat7_2002_10 image2=lsat7_2002_20 image3=lsat7_2002_30 \
      image4=lsat7_2002_40 image5=lsat7_2002_50 image7=lsat7_2002_70
