Improve your image with the Pixel Editor

Do you have blemishes in your image products, such as clouds and shadows that obscure interesting features, or DEMs that don’t represent bare earth? Or perhaps you want to obscure certain confidential features, or correct erroneous class information in your classmap. The Pixel Editor can help you improve your final image products.

After you have conducted your scientific remote sensing and image analysis, your results need to be presented to your customers, constituents and stakeholders.

The pixel editor helps you achieve this last important aspect of your workflow – effective presentation of results.
