Whats new in eCognition 8.8


Published on

Pioneered a decade ago for satellite remote sensing, eCognition enables geospatial data such as images, point clouds and Geographic Information System (GIS) vectors to be integrated and analyzed to quantify features or detect changes over time. eCognition 8.8 now extends these capabilities for mobile terrestrial data collection applications.

  8. 8. FAQ Q: How will I get eCognition 8.8? A: All users with a maintenance contract valid on October 2012 are entitled to eCognition 8.8 at no charge. The eCognition licensing team automatically sends out download information for all eligible customers via email. New customers should contact eCognition sales at www.eCognition.com Q: How can I download eCognition 8.8 for 32-bit operating systems? A: eCognition 8.8 will be the last one to support 32-bit operating systems. If you want to download the 32-bit product editions please contact the eCognition support (www.eCognition.com/support). Q: Will eCognition 8.7 still run if I install eCognition 8.8? A: eCognition 8.7 will also run on the eCognition 8.8 license therefore you can switch between versions any time. Q: Will eCognition 8 rule sets run on eCognition 8.8? A: eCognition 8.8 is downward compatible, this means you can run all 8.x rule sets. eCognition 8.8 rule sets will not work on Developer 8.7 however. Q: Is there a trial version for eCognition 8.8 A: Yes, can find a trial version for eCognition 8.8 at http://www.ecognition.com/products/trial-software Note: *eCognition® Server is not included with trial software download package. eCognition Developer trial version allows non time limited full software access with the following restrictions: Disabled, in this demo: export functions, saving of rule sets, workspace environment. Projects saved in the trial version cannot be opened in a fully-licensed version of eCognition Developer.©2011 Trimble 15-Oct-12 8
