Each student must bring a laptop with a license of eCognition Developer. Temporary licenses are available for the duration of this course.


eCognition Developer fundamentals training will be held at the CSDS Training Center from June 3 – 5, 2019.

This three day course covers all the core concepts of OBIA (Object Based Image Analysis) and the fundamental tools and functions required to become a proficient Rule Set developer within eCognition Developer.

The participant is guided through general theory, followed by hands-on exercises designed to emphasize both the how and why of Rule Set development. The goal of this training is to provide attendees with the capabilities to setup an image analysis workflow and the knowledge of when to use which tool to achieve the desired results with their own data.

In addition, we review tools and methods available within the Developer software such as native vector handling and template matching.
