Simple geometry library
Shareloc, a simple remote sensing geometric library
Shareloc is an open source remote sensing geolocation library.
It performs image coordinates projections between sensor and ground and vice versa. Shareloc handles RPC models and direct location grids.
|Direct localization at constant elevation||Direct localization on DEM|
Shareloc main functions :
- Direct/inverse localization at constant elevation (ellipsoidal earth model).
- Direct localization on 2.5D DEM (w.r.t ellipsoid or geoid).
- Line of sight triangulation.
- Rectification grid creation.
- Rectification grid interpolation.
Shareloc development has been motivated by the need of a full python component for CNES studies and the need of an underlying geometrical component for CARS.
Shareloc can be installed in a virtualenv from Pypi repository:
python -m venv shareloc-venv source shareloc-venv/bin/activate pip install --upgrade pip pip install shareloc
For developers, Shareloc can be installed from source in a virtualenv using the following commands:
git clone https://github.com/CNES/shareloc cd shareloc make install source venv/bin/activate # to go in installed dev environment
Dependencies : git, make
To test the import of the library:
python3 >>> import shareloc
