Even Rouault: Advanced JPEG-in-TIFF uses in GDAL

OSGeo Planet - Wed, 2014-04-23 18:38
This post is about advanced uses of JPEG compression in TIFF/GeoTIFF files. We will call such files JPEG-in-TIFF for the sake of shortness.br /br /JPEG-in-TIFF is a popular variation of TIFF, described in a href=http://partners.adobe.com/public/developer/en/tiff/TIFFphotoshop.pdfTIFF specification supplement 2/a, well-suited for aerial/satellite imagery, that exhibits an interesting quality / (size * decompression_time) ratio, while remaining a format simple to encode/decode with Free and Open Source software.br /br /Side note: while JPEG 2000 compression is a much more capable format, F.O.S.S. is still trying to catch up with proprietary implementations, although the a href=http://www.openjpeg.org/OpenJPEG library/a (that can be used through the a href=http://gdal.org/frmt_jp2openjpeg.htmlGDAL JP2OpenJPEG driver/a) has made recent advances that make it worth to be considered.br /br /h4JPEG-in-TIFF creation options/h4br /To go back to JPEG-in-TIFF, quality/size can be controlled by selecting :br /ulliappropriate subsampling and colorspace. For RGB natural images, a good choice is YCbCr colorspace with subsampling of factor 2 on the chrominance difference componants (YCbCr 4:2:0). This is the PHOTOMETRIC=YCbCr creation option in the a href=http://gdal.org/frmt_gtiff.htmlGDAL GTiff driver/a. Using it make the size of the image typically 2 to 3 times smaller than the default value for photometric interpretation (RGB)/lilithe usual JPEG quality parameter that acts on the quantization coefficients. This is the JPEG_QUALITY creation option./li/ulGenerally, you will want to generate a tiled version of JPEG-in-TIFF (TILED=YES creation option), so as to be able to access efficiently and in a random way to parts of the image.br /br /h4Implicit overviews/h4br /The very latest improvements added to the GDAL development version (trunk r27226 or later, already deprecating the soon to-be-released GDAL 1.11) make it possible to have faster downsampled versions of JPEG-in-TIFF than before. Despite this improvement, the recommandation remains to generate overviews, either external or internal, with the a href=http://gdal.org/gdaladdo.htmlgdaladdo/a utility, in order to have very fast access to downsampled versions of a raster (at the expense of increased storage space)br /br /But what can we do when such overviews are not (yet) generated ? Previously, the GTiff driver would decompress the queried part of the raster at its full resolution and compute a downsampled image from it. But this is more slow than needed.br /br /Schematically (voluntary omitting quantization and Huffman compression steps), a JPEG compressed stream is made of a sequence of squares of size 8x8 (or 16x16 with YCbCr 4:2:0) pixels (the technical name for such as block is a MCU, Minimum Code Unit) that contain the coefficients resulting from the Discrete Cosine Transform of the original 8x8 (16x16) pixels. To decompress a MCU to its full resolution, you need to compute the inverse DCT on the whole set of 8x8 (16x16) coefficients, which has some cost. But an interesting property of MCU coefficients is that you only need to operate on the high order ones to compute a lower resolution of the uncompressed block, and libjpeg, the software library that does the low-level job of compressing and decompressing the JPEG codestream, is capable of that ! Actually, we had already used that capability in the GDAL JPEG driver of GDAL 1.10, to expose implicit overview levels (at x2, x4, x8 sub-sampling factors), but it was not yet plugged into the GTiff driver.br /br /Now, JPEG-in-TIFF files, in all possible formulations (tiled / stripped / single-stripped, pixel-interleaved vs band-interleaved, single band vs YCbCr 4:2:0 vs RGB colorspace), will internally expose overview levels at x2, x4 and x8 sub-sampling factors for raster operations.br /br /So computing the 1/16th reduction of a BMNG tile of size 21600x21600, with 256x256 tiling, JPEG RGB compression, now takes about 3.5s with the latest developmenet version about 21s in GDAL 1.11 :br /br /blockquote class=tr_bqGDAL trunk :br /$ time gdal_translate world.topo.bathy.200406.3x21600x21600.B2.tif out.tif -outsize 6.25% 6.25%br /real    0m3.441sbr /br /GDAL 1.11 : br /$ time gdal_translate world.topo.bathy.200406.3x21600x21600.B2.tif out.tif -outsize 6.25% 6.25%br /real    0m20.987s/blockquoteNote that the whole JPEG codestream will still be read from the storage, so the new optimization will be especially worthwile when I/O speed is good w.r.t CPU speed (whereas with JPEG2000 compression, due to the way how wavelet coefficients are packed, you only need to read small portion of the file).br /br /If you try gdalinfo on a JPEG-in-TIFF file, relax if you don't see the implicit overviews mentionned. They are hidden most of the time to avoid confusion : it would be difficult for users to distinguish between internal pre-computed overviews, which benefit from fast acces, and the new implicit overviews. The latter ones are only made visible to the internals of the GTiff driver when a raster operation takes place.br /br /h4Lossless conversion of JPEG into JPEG-in-TIFF/h4br /This is a feature that appeared in GDAL 1.10 released last year, but which has probably been unnoticed in the a href=http://trac.osgeo.org/gdal/wiki/Release/1.10.0-NewsNEWS/a. The conversion of a JPEG file to a JPEG-in-TIFF is done without decompression and recompression cycles, through the preservation of the MCU coefficients, making it effectively lossless (the initial JPEG compression was lossy, but the conversion into JPEG-in-TIFF is lossless).br /This optimized conversion path is taken if all the following conditions are met :br /ullithe source dataset is a JPEG file (or a VRT with a JPEG as a single SimpleSource) /lilithe target dataset is a JPEG-in-TIFF file/lilino explicity target JPEG quality is specified/lilino change in colorspace is specified/lilino sub-windowing is requested/lilietc... /li/ulBut it is compatible with the generation of a tiled JPEG-in-TIFF from the original JPEG image. Explicit assigment of target SRS and bounds are also possible.br /br /So, the following commands will use the lossless copy method :br /blockquote class=tr_bq$ gdal_translate in.jpg out.tif -co COMPRESS=JPEGbr /br /$ gdal_translate in.jpg out.tif -co COMPRESS=JPEG -co TILED=YESbr /br /$ gdal_translate in.jpg out.tif -co COMPRESS=JPEG -a_srs EPSG:4326 -a_ullr -180 90 180 -90/blockquotewhereas the following commands will NOT :br /blockquote class=tr_bq$ gdal_translate in.jpg out.tif -co COMPRESS=JPEG -co QUALITY=60br /br /$ gdal_translate in.jpg out.tif -srcwin 0 0 500 500 -co COMPRESS=JPEG /blockquoteh4Lossless extraction of JPEG tiles from JPEG-in-TIFF/h4The fresh new a href=http://svn.osgeo.org/gdal/trunk/gdal/swig/python/samples/jpeg_in_tiff_extract.pyjpeg_in_tiff_extract.py/a Python script (needs GDAL trunk) does (part of) the reverse operation. From a JPEG-in-TIFF, it can extract one particular tile/strip into a standalone JPEG file, and generate the companion .aux.xml file if the source JPEG-in-TIFF is georeferenced.br /br /The following command will extract the tile at column 10 (count starts at 0), row 20 from a tiled JPEG-in-TIFF :br /blockquote class=tr_bqpython jpeg_in_tiff_extract.py world.topo.bathy.200406.3x21600x21600.B2.tif out_10_20.jpg 10 20/blockquoteOr to extract all the tiles (filenames will have the out_X_Y.jpg pattern) :br /blockquote class=tr_bqpython jpeg_in_tiff_extract.py world.topo.bathy.200406.3x21600x21600.B2.tif out.jpg/blockquoteThis could be interesting for tiling servers that want to keep global mosaics as sources. br /br /Note: this is not exactly the reverse operation from JPEG --gt; JPEG-in-TIFF conversion, since it will not merge several JPEG-in-TIFF strips/tiles into a single JPEG file.br /br /h4Ideas for later.../h4br /Instead of the jpeg_in_tiff_extract.py script, we could imagine that the lossless extraction of JPEG from JPEG-in-TIFF could be done, in a natural way, with :br /blockquote class=tr_bqgdal_translate -srcwin X Y XSIZE YSIZE in.tif out.jpg -of JPEG/blockquoteThat would require detecting a sub-windowing pattern in the temporary a href=http://www.gdal.org/gdal_vrttut.htmlVRT/a generated by gdal_translate, and then reassembling the right MCU coefficients. X, Y, XSIZE and YSIZE should be multiple of 8 or 16 to match MCU dimensions.br /br /A more powerful, but even more complicated, idea would be to have first-class support in GDAL for the DCT coefficients, as raster bands ?, but it would require some thinking to find the right modelisation, and even more to implement it (with complications like YCbCr 4:2:0 subsampling).br /br /In a similar vein, why not imagining:br /br /blockquote class=tr_bqgdal_translate mosaic_of_jpeg_images.vrt out.tif -co COMPRESS=JPEG/blockquoteTo make it easier, the VRT file should be made of JPEG tiles whose dimensions are a multiple of the MCU dimensions, and that are placed into the mosaic at offsets that are themselves multiple of the tile dimensions. An additional constraint is that all the JPEG tiles should share the same JPEG quantization and Huffman tables, since in JPEG-in-TIFF, those tables are common for all tiles/strips and placed in the JPEGTABLES TIFF tag.br /Building a JPEG-in-TIFF from a mosaic in the GTiff driver might be tricky, but an ad-hoc Python script might be possible.br /br /I will stop here with science-fiction. There is already enough to experiment !br /br /br /br /

Stefano Costa: #MuseumWeek: riflessioni a freddo

OSGeo Planet - Wed, 2014-04-23 16:01
pIl mese scorso abbiamo strongcelebrato/strong la prima #MuseumWeek, una settimana di alta visibilità emsocial/em per i musei di alcuni paesi, tra cui l’Italia ‒ tutta su Twitter. Se ne è parlato molto tra gli addetti ai lavori e mi sembra che tutti siano rimasti contenti. Anche io ho partecipato alla #MuseumWeek, occupandomi dell’account a href=https://twitter.com/archeoliguria@archeoliguria/a della Soprintendenza per i Beni Archeologici della Liguria (dove lavoro). Siamo quasi in fondo alla a href=https://discover.twitter.com/arts/museum-week/museumweek-italialista dei musei italiani che hanno aderito ufficialmente/a./p pGià in corso d’opera c’erano state raccolte di dubbi, più sullo svolgimento pratico che sull’iniziativa in generale, a href=http://www.linkiesta.it/blogs/glov/una-museumweek-regola-d-artecome ha scritto Linkiesta/a. Qui vorrei raccogliere, un po’ per riflessione un po’ per strongmugugno/strong, alcuni elementi di debolezza che ho colto durante la settimana e che mi sembrano importanti per tutte le prossime volte che parteciperemo a una iniziativa simile./p pAnzitutto, i tempi. La #MuseumWeek si è svolta dal 24 al 30 marzo 2014, e la notizia è a href=https://blog.twitter.com/it/2014/museumweekcomparsa sul blog di Twitter/a il 10 marzo, cioè due settimane prima. Per essere una iniziativa a cui dovevano partecipare centinaia di istituzioni in mezza Europa, il preavviso è stato scarso. Ma il motivo è presto detto: è stata organizzata completamente top-down, con date e tempistiche fissate in anticipo, fino alla definizione degli argomenti da trattare. Mi direte: è il bello del social, l’improvvisazione, e a href=http://generazionediarcheologi.myblog.it/2014/03/31/la-museumweek-italia-eravamo-bradipi-tecnologici/ title= La #museumweek in Italia: ma non eravamo “bradipi tecnologici”?tu sei un bradipo/a! Vi rispondo che con 5 musei da coordinare distribuiti in tutta la regione, con una infrastruttura tecnologica non proprio all’avanguardia emnon è stato facile/em ‒ strongi bradipi quasi sempre fanno 4 o 5 cose diverse contemporaneamente/strong e non dedicano l’intera giornata ai social media. I bradipi più bradipi sono stati quelli che già durante la #MuseumWeek mandavano e-mail chiedendo di inviare emvia e-mail/em dei messaggi di 140 caratteri che poi avrebbero provveduto a far pubblicare su un certo account istituzionale molto seguito…/p pA chi si iscriveva mandando una e-mail a museumweek2014@gmail.com veniva inviata da span class=gDMassimiliano D’Ostilio (della a href=http://www.tta.it/società TTA/a) /spana href=http://imgur.com/lhfS24puna breve presentazione/a in cui si scoprivano i temi del giorno e le modalità previste di interazione. Si tratta secondo me di un strongdocumento banale/strong, di taglio puramente promozionale, in cui sono stati elencati solo benefici e nessun rischio (l’ABC della progettazione, credo). Tanto per fare due esempi concreti: i musei italiani hanno corso il rischio di essere insultati per i noti problemi di gestione del patrimonio (durante quella settimana non credo sia successo, ma capita), mentre gli utenti hanno rischiato di trovarsi la timeline inondata di contenuti non sempre interessanti (e credo che in alcuni giorni questo sia successo davvero)./p pLa scaletta delle tematiche era molto adatta a musei grandi e tradizionali, ruotando in modo determinante intorno alle emcollezioni/em, le emopere/em e i emquadri/em, insomma non il massimo per piccoli musei e aree archeologiche. In effetti se rileggete il post di presentazione questa preferenza è chiara, dal calibro dei musei citati (e speriamo coinvolti nell’ideazione, almeno loro). Sopra ho scritto che questi sono appunti per la prossima volta che emparteciperemo/em proprio perché la #MuseumWeek, bella ed entusiasmante, era stronguna offerta da prendere o lasciare/strong ‒ anche se qualche museo l’ha interpretata a modo suo./p pMa insomma, tutti questi sono inutili mugugni perché la #MuseumWeek è stata una figata pazzesca e siamo stati nei trending topic per una settimana intera e abbiamo moltiplicato i follower e abbiamo avuto n-mila interazioni… forse. Siamo stati nei trending topic ma eravamo veramente tanti quindi era abbastanza scontato, oltre al fatto che Twitter potrebbe aver deciso di mettere la #MuseumWeek nei trending topic. Abbiamo moltiplicato i follower, indubbiamente, e per molte realtà piccole e agli esordi social questo è stato importante: @archeoliguria è passata nell’arco della settimana da 200 a 300 follower circa. Abbiamo avuto davvero molte interazioni, che non mi sono messo a contare, ma sulla qualità di queste interazioni ho qualche dubbio: anzitutto c’è stato un fortissimo senso di cooperazione tra le realtà medio-piccole e ci siamo fatti coraggio a vicenda, ritwittando i messaggi degli altri musei, commentando e rispondendo alle domande del giorno tra di noi, mentre il pubblico “esterno” ha interagito meno (potrei dire molto meno, se avessi dei numeri). Giornate come #AskTheCurator e #GetCreative hanno mostrato come il pubblico, anche quando si entusiasma, è abbastanza pigro o semplicemente non è abituato a parlare con il museo ‒ anche perché c’è una ampia fetta di popolazione “esperta” di archeologi, storici dell’arte, guide turistiche che forse ha partecipato più per senso di appartenenza che per curiosità verso qualcosa di nuovo. Generalizzando, mi dispiace invece notare come i grandi musei e poli museali abbiano scelto ancora una volta di rimanere in modalità broadcasting, sfruttando tutta la loro visibilità per mostrarsi al pubblico con cui non hanno minimamente interagito. Delle vere superstar. A proposito di superstar, è rimasto un po’ in sordina anche a href=https://twitter.com/stekosteko/lists/museoparlantel’esercito sempre più numeroso dei personaggi parlanti/a che hanno iniziato a popolare Twitter dopo il successo dei due tamarri bronzi di Riace (a proposito: che fine avranno fatto?)/p pTutto da buttare? Assolutamente no. Ma non è tutto #oro quel che #luccica e non credo, come ha invece scritto @insopportabile, che Twitter abbia assolto al ruolo di un ministero della cultura organizzando la #MuseumWeek. Il successo lo abbiamo fatto noi ma credo che ci voglia ben altro per trasferire il successo social ai musei in carne e ossa: non dobbiamo vendere niente, ma raccontare tantissimo./p pa href=http://steko.iosa.it/?flattrss_redirectamp;id=1516amp;md5=9f21a9907bf571625ebf74ffd5ca5c37 target=_blank title=Flattrimg alt=flattr this! src=http://steko.iosa.it/wp-content/plugins/flattr/img/flattr-badge-large.png //a/p

Jo Cook: Portable GIS Update

OSGeo Planet - Wed, 2014-04-23 10:54
pIt’s taken slightly longer than I’d like, but I’ve updated Portable GIS to include QGIS 2.2. You can find a copy of this new version a href=http://archaeogeek.com/portable-gis.htmlon the portable gis page/a. I’ve included a zip file of the qgis2 folder for those that don’t want to install a full new version. You should be able to simply copy this over the existing apps/qgis2 folder, but you will lose any personalisations, such as new plugins etc that you’ve installed, so you have been warned!/p pNote that there’s a slight regression with this version- as I’m no longer claiming that QGIS Server and Map Viewer will work. I’ve had all sorts of trouble configuring these to work in the windows environment, let alone portable gis, and I wanted to get this release out without additional delay. When I get chance, I’ll get it finished, and believe me it will deserve a blog post and fanfare all of it’s own./p pAlso note that this is my first move away from using Dropbox as my file hosting service. Please bear with me if there are any problems with the link!/p div class=feedflare a href=http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/ComputingGisAndArchaeologyInTheUk?a=4FR0eo0Neeo:9SKBiH-_qik:yIl2AUoC8zAimg border=0 src=http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/ComputingGisAndArchaeologyInTheUk?d=yIl2AUoC8zA //a a href=http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/ComputingGisAndArchaeologyInTheUk?a=4FR0eo0Neeo:9SKBiH-_qik:V_sGLiPBpWUimg border=0 src=http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/ComputingGisAndArchaeologyInTheUk?i=4FR0eo0Neeo:9SKBiH-_qik:V_sGLiPBpWU //a a href=http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/ComputingGisAndArchaeologyInTheUk?a=4FR0eo0Neeo:9SKBiH-_qik:gIN9vFwOqvQimg border=0 src=http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/ComputingGisAndArchaeologyInTheUk?i=4FR0eo0Neeo:9SKBiH-_qik:gIN9vFwOqvQ //a a href=http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/ComputingGisAndArchaeologyInTheUk?a=4FR0eo0Neeo:9SKBiH-_qik:qj6IDK7rITsimg border=0 src=http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/ComputingGisAndArchaeologyInTheUk?d=qj6IDK7rITs //a /divimg height=1 src=http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/ComputingGisAndArchaeologyInTheUk/~4/4FR0eo0Neeo width=1 /

Jeff went into detail about specific applications of QGIS, highlighting examples from NOAA and NASA. Larry picked it up from there and discussed the QGIS ecosystem and open source development community. He noted that plug-in development has been a long-time focus within the community and sees core development picking up steam in the coming year./p pimg alt=edit height=269px; src=https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/1MgJr7q7OtNYRdA2rqHkIkpzUKv0Y6x2QH2tKKDkBkxud_AMT3ozHzFbfAixC4Nr4l56-2UEqUSTI2V74QjttWaSd3RL7JJIwm670NupSSxIlnbTxHVWi5FNUnQPUmIu9Q width=400px; //p p dir=ltrNext, a href=https://twitter.com/timlinuxTim Sutton/a from the QGIS project steering committee joined remotely.

GeoSolutions: Developer’s Corner: Supporting Wind Barbs In GeoServer and GeoTools

OSGeo Planet - Fri, 2014-04-18 15:34
pimg alt=winds class=attachment-post-thumbnail wp-post-image height=305 src=http://www.geo-solutions.it/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/winds.jpg?18502d width=354 //pDear All, in this post a href=http://www.geo-solutions.it target=_blankwe/a would like to talk about the work we are doing to improve support in a href=http://www.geo-solutions.it/technologies/geoserver/ target=_blankGeoServer/a for serving Meteorological and Oceanographic data, specifically the ability to render raster data for wind models using Wind Barbs. When ingesting and serving MetOc models (raster data) for Wind data you are now already able to render  them using an arrow symbology by concatenating: ul lithe a href=http://geoserver.geo-solutions.it/edu/en/wps/rendering_tx.html#point-extraction target=_blankgs:rasterAsFeatureCollection/a Rendering Transformation to transform the raster dataset into a series of vector points where the bands of the input raster data are the attributes/li lia a href=http://geoserver.geo-solutions.it/edu/en/wps/rendering_tx.html#wind-arrows target=_blankvector style/a to create arrows for each point with proper module and rotation controlled by the module and direction of the Wind data/li /ul With this approach you can obtain something like the following: [caption id=attachment_1438 align=aligncenter width=512]a href=http://www.geo-solutions.it/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/wind.jpg?18502d target=_blankimg alt=wind class=wp-image-1438 height=288 src=http://www.geo-solutions.it/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/wind-1024x576.jpg?18502d width=512 //a Rendering GFS Wind Model data as arrows in GeoServer[/caption] There are a few drawbacks in this approach which are trying to improve in GeoServer, namely: ol liit is not uncommon to draw too many symbols depending on the resolution of the underlying data which makes the visualization slow and cluttered. It is possible to use the standard techniques in a href=http://www.geo-solutions.it/technologies/geoserver/ target=_blankGeoServer/a to reduce the cluttering but this happens once you have generated the vector points with the a href=http://geoserver.geo-solutions.it/edu/en/wps/rendering_tx.html#point-extraction target=_blankgs:rasterAsFeatureCollection/a Rendering Transformation hence it is a slow process (think about collision detection and conflict resolution)/li limeteorologists want Wind Barbs and not simple arrows/li /ol We are currently working to improve point 1, we will describe that work in a different post. As of point 2 we are going to provide native support for Wind Barbs by developing a new graphic factory for a href=http://www.geo-solutions.it/technologies/geoserver/ target=_blankGeoServer/a (actually for its rendering engine which is developed using GeoTools) which would allow to render vector points a as Wind Barbs this way: lt;WellKnownNamegt;windbarbs://default(lt;ogc:PropertyNamegt;speedlt;/ogc:PropertyNamegt;)[m/s]lt;/WellKnownNamegt; which allows us to: ul liextract the speed from the respective ispeed/i attribute (yes, we have renamed the underlying raster band to speed)/li lispecify the unit of measure of the speed. Note that Wind Barbs always deal with speed in emknots/em.
