Getting Started with ProRaster
This playlist of four videos will give you an introduction to ProRaster and get you up to speed quickly. As a new customer, you should watch these videos!
Video 1 – Getting Started with ProRaster
Video 2 – Understanding Key Concepts in ProRaster
Video 3 – Exploring the ProRaster User Interface
Video 4 – Using the ProRaster Preview Window
Learn the basics of using ProRaster in this series of four instructional videos.
In the first video, learn how to get up to speed quickly in ProRaster using drag and drop, and how to publish and export algorithms to GIS software.
In the second video, go deeper to learn about important concepts in ProRaster including the MRD format and algorithm structure and the concept of reusable resources.
In the third video, take a tour of the ProRaster user interface and find out how to start editing your algorithms.
In the final video, see a demonstration of the preview map window in operation and find out how to open and manage external map windows.
ProRaster Basic Training
Acquire the basic training you need to use ProRaster in this series of five videos.
Video 1 – Image layer basics in ProRaster
Video 2 – RGB Color layer basics in ProRaster
Video 3 – LUT Color layer basics in ProRaster
Video 4 – Hill-shading in ProRaster
Video 5 – Publishing and Exporting from ProRaster
In the first video, learn how to use the Image layer to display imagery and color data.
In the second video, learn how to use the RGB Color layer to display spectral data using data-color maps that can enhance your imagery.
In the third video, learn how to use the LUT Color layer to display any raster data and take a deeper look at data transforms and some advanced techniques.
In the fourth video, learn how to control hill-shading to achieve the highest quality rendered maps.
In the final video, learn how to publish algorithms to MapInfo Pro and how to export algorithms to located image rasters.
ProRaster Resource Editors Basic Training
Acquire the basic training you need to use the five resource editor dialogs in ProRaster in this series of six videos.
Video 1 – Raster Source Editor basics in ProRaster
Video 2 – Color Table Editor basics in ProRaster
Video 3 – Data Conditioning Editor basics in ProRaster
Video 4 – Data Transform Selection basics in ProRaster
Video 5 – Data Transform Editor basics in ProRaster
Video 6 – Projection Explorer basics in ProRaster
In the first video, learn how to use the Raster Source Editor to build raster source resources that you can use in your algorithms.
In the second video, learn how to use the Color Table Editor to link to existing color tables and create and edit new color tables.
In the third video, learn how to use the Data Conditioning Editor to build filters to pre-process and clean your raster data in algorithms.
In the fourth video, learn how to define and select data transforms in the algorithm editor for your LUTCOlor, RGBColor, and Image layers.
In the fifth video, learn how to use the Data Transform Editor to build advanced data transforms that you can use in your algorithms.
In the final video, learn how to use coordinate systems in your algorithms, and how to use the Projection Explorer to select coordinate systems.
ProRaster Tips and Tricks
Check out these videos for specific examples of how to use ProRaster capabilities to achieve your objectives.
Video 1 – Selecting classification for display
Video 2 – Valid Cell By Component Rule
Video 3 – Using Opacity – Transparency in ProRaster Premium
In the first video, using the WorldCover classified raster as an example, learn how to display only one, or a set of the available classifications, in a ProRaster algorithm.
In the second video, I explain how to use the Valid Cell By Component rule in an algorithm.
In the third video, I explain all the opacity controls in ProRaster and demonstrate how to use them. It includes a demonstration of using the Data Transform Editor to create a opacity transform for advanced opacity per pixel modulation.
