Detailed Description

The GDALRasterAttributeTable (or RAT) class is used to encapsulate a table used to provide attribute information about pixel values.

Each row in the table applies to a range of pixel values (or a single value in some cases), and might have attributes such as the histogram count for that range, the color pixels of that range should be drawn names of classes or any other generic information.

Raster attribute tables can be used to represent histograms, color tables, and classification information.

Each column in a raster attribute table has a name, a type (integer, floating point or string), and a GDALRATFieldUsage. The usage distinguishes columns with particular understood purposes (such as color, histogram count, name) and columns that have specific purposes not understood by the library (long label, suitability_for_growing_wheat, etc).

In the general case each row has a column indicating the minimum pixel values falling into that category, and a column indicating the maximum pixel value. These are indicated with usage values of GFU_Min, and GFU_Max. In other cases where each row is a discrete pixel value, one column of usage GFU_MinMax can be used.

In other cases all the categories are of equal size and regularly spaced and the categorization information can be determine just by knowing the value at which the categories start, and the size of a category. This is called "Linear Binning" and the information is kept specially on the raster attribute table as a whole.

RATs are normally associated with GDALRasterBands and be be queried using the GDALRasterBand::GetDefaultRAT() method.


Member Function Documentation

virtual int GDALRasterAttributeTable::ChangesAreWrittenToFile (  )  [pure virtual]

Determine whether changes made to this RAT are reflected directly in the dataset.

If this returns FALSE then GDALRasterBand.SetDefaultRAT() should be called. Otherwise this is unnecessary since changes to this object are reflected in the dataset.

This method is the same as the C function GDALRATChangesAreWrittenToFile().

Implemented in GDALDefaultRasterAttributeTable.

virtual GDALDefaultRasterAttributeTable* GDALRasterAttributeTable::Clone (  )  const [pure virtual]

Copy Raster Attribute Table.

Creates a new copy of an existing raster attribute table. The new copy becomes the responsibility of the caller to destroy. May fail (return NULL) if the attribute table is too large to clone (GetRowCount() * GetColCount() > RAT_MAX_ELEM_FOR_CLONE)

This method is the same as the C function GDALRATClone().

Returns:
new copy of the RAT as an in-memory implementation.

Implemented in GDALDefaultRasterAttributeTable.

CPLErr GDALRasterAttributeTable::CreateColumn ( const char *  pszFieldName,
GDALRATFieldType  eFieldType,
GDALRATFieldUsage  eFieldUsage 
) [virtual]

Create new column.

If the table already has rows, all row values for the new column will be initialized to the default value ("", or zero). The new column is always created as the last column, can will be column (field) "GetColumnCount()-1" after CreateColumn() has completed successfully.

This method is the same as the C function GDALRATCreateColumn().

Parameters:
pszFieldName the name of the field to create.
eFieldType the field type (integer, double or string).
eFieldUsage the field usage, GFU_Generic if not known.
Returns:
CE_None on success or CE_Failure if something goes wrong.

Reimplemented in GDALDefaultRasterAttributeTable.

void GDALRasterAttributeTable::DumpReadable ( FILE *  fp = NULL  )  [virtual]

Parameters:
fp file to dump to or NULL for stdout.
virtual int GDALRasterAttributeTable::GetColOfUsage ( GDALRATFieldUsage   )  const [pure virtual]

the number of rows.

Implemented in GDALDefaultRasterAttributeTable.

int GDALRasterAttributeTable::GetRowOfValue ( double  dfValue  )  const [virtual]

Get row for pixel value.

Given a raw pixel value, the raster attribute table is scanned to determine which row in the table applies to the pixel value. The row index is returned.

This method is the same as the C function GDALRATGetRowOfValue().

Parameters:
dfValue the pixel value.
Returns:
the row index or -1 if no row is appropriate.

) const [pure virtual]

Fetch field value as a string.

The value of the requested column in the requested row is returned as a string. If the field is numeric, it is formatted as a string using default rules, so some precision may be lost.

The returned string is temporary and cannot be expected to be available after the next GDAL call.

This method is the same as the C function GDALRATGetValueAsString().

Parameters:

This method will setup a whole raster attribute table based on the contents of the passed color table. The Value (GFU_MinMax), Red (GFU_Red), Green (GFU_Green), Blue (GFU_Blue), and Alpha (GFU_Alpha) fields are created, and a row is set for each entry in the color table.

The raster attribute table must be empty before calling InitializeFromColorTable().

The Value fields are set based on the implicit assumption with color tables that entry 0 applies to pixel value 0, 1 to 1, etc.

This method is the same as the C function GDALRATInitializeFromColorTable().

Parameters:
poTable the color table to copy from.
Returns:
CE_None on success or CE_Failure if something goes wrong.

CPLErr GDALRasterAttributeTable::SetLinearBinning ( double  dfRow0MinIn,
double  dfBinSizeIn 
) [virtual]

For RATs with equal sized categories (in pixel value space) that are evenly spaced, this method may be used to associate the linear binning information with the table.

This method is the same as the C function GDALRATSetLinearBinning().

Parameters:
dfRow0MinIn the lower bound (pixel value) of the first category.
dfBinSizeIn the width of each category (in pixel value units).
Returns:
CE_None on success or CE_Failure on failure.

Reimplemented in GDALDefaultRasterAttributeTable.
