Request for Changes-100: Add external soil file to Sail model

From OTBWiki
Jump to: navigation, search



Add the possibility for Sail model to use an external file with soil reflectances.


The Sail model simulates canopy reflectance and needs soil reflectance values to be combined with the simulated vegetation values. The current version uses the combination of two soil reflectances (wet and dry soils) stored in the DataSpecP5B class.

The goal of this RFC is to give the possibility of using any soil spectra provided in a file.

Implementation details


The class otb::SoilDataBase is added to be responsible for the parsing of the file and providing the reflectances as a function of the wavelength. The soil file follows the same format as the RSR files: a CSV using spaces as separators; the first column is wavelength and the following 1 to N columns give the reflectance of the N soil spectra in the file. The method

double GetReflectance(size_t SoilIndex, WavelenghtType wl) const;

is used to access the reflectance of a particular soil spectrum for a given wavelength. The data is stored as a vector of std::unordered_map:

using SoilData = std::unordered_map<WavelenghtType, double>;
using SoilDataVector = std::vector<SoilData>;

The otb::SailModel class is modified to accept a SoilDataBase:
