NAME

       ossim-viewshed - ossim-viewshed

SYNOPSIS

       ossim-viewshed [options] <obs_lat> <obs_lon> <output-image>

OPTIONS

       --dem <filename>
              Specifies  the  input  DEM  filename.  If  none provided, the elevation database is
              referenced as specified in prefs file

       --disable-elev
              Will disable the elevation

       --disable-notify
              Takes an argument. Arguments are ALL, WARN, NOTICE, INFO,  FATAL,  DEBUG.   If  you
              want  multiple disables then just do multiple --disable-notify on the command line.
              All argument are case insensitive.  Default is all are enabled.

       --disable-plugin
              Will disable the plugin loader

       --fov <start> <end>
              Optional arguments specifying the field-of-view boundary azimuths (in degrees).  By
              default,  a  360 deg FOV is computed. The arc is taken clockwise from start to end,
              so for a FOV of 225 deg from W, through N to SE, start=270 and end=135

       --gsd <meters>
              Specifies output GSD in meters. Defaults to the same resolution as input DEM.

       --hgt-of-eye <meters>
              Specifies the observers height-of-eye above the terrain in meters. Defaults to  1.5
              m.

       --horizon <filename>
              Experimental.  Outputs the max elevation angles for all azimuths to <filename>, for
              horizon profiling.

       --lut <filename>
              Specifies the optional lookup table filename for  mapping  the  single-band  output
              image  to  an  RGB. The LUT provided must be in the ossimIndexToRgbLutFilter format
              and must handle the three output viewshed values (see --values option).

       --ossim-logfile
              takes a logfile as  an  argument.   All  output  messages  are  redirected  to  the
              specified log file.  By default there is no log file and all messages are enabled.

       --radius <meters>
              Specifies  max  visibility  in  meters.  Required  unless --size is specified. This
              option constrains output to a circle, similar to a radar display

       --request-api
              Causes applications API to be output as JSON to stdout. Accepts  optional  filename
              to store JSON output.

       --reticle <int>
              Specifies the size of the reticle at the observerlocation in pixels from the center
              (i.e., the radius of the reticle). Defaults to 2. A value of 0 hides  the  reticle.
              See --values option for setting reticle color.

       --simulation
              For engineering/debug purposes

       --size <int>
              Instead  of  a  visibility  radius, directly specifies the dimensions of the output
              product in pixels (output is square). Required unless --radius is specified.

       --summary
              Causes a product summary to be output to the console.

       --tbs  "Thread By Sector". For engineering/debug purposes

       --threads <n>
              Number of threads. Defaults to  use  all  available  cores.  For  engineering/debug
              purposes

       --values <int int int>
              Specifies  the  pixel  values  (0-255)  for the visible, hidden and reticle pixels,
              respectively. Defaults to  visible=null  (0),  hidden=128,  and  observer  position
              reticle is highlighted with 255.

       -K     specify individual keywords to add to the preferences keyword list: name=value

       -P     specify a preference file to load

       -T     specify  the classes to trace, ex: ossimInit|ossimImage.*  will trace ossimInit and
              all ossimImage classes

       Computes the viewshed for the given viewpt coordinates. The output is a binary image  with
       0 representing hidden points, and 1 representing visible points.

EXAMPLES

       ossim-viewshed --radius 50
              28.0 -80.5 output-hlz.tif

       ossim-viewshed --size 1024
              28.0 -80.5 output-hlz.tif

       An alternate command line provides switch for observer lat and lon:

       ossim-viewshed --rlz 25 --observer 28.0 -80.5
              output-hlz.tif
