The Producer Field Guide provides concepts and theory of geospatial analysis processes and image processing functions.
The Producer Field Guide is primarily a reference to information about systems that catalog, store, publish, process, and deliver various data types including raster, vector, LIDAR, and virtually any digital object. The guide also explains how the Hexagon Geospatial Power Portfolio Suite manipulates data, but does not describe the actual operation of the software. The instructions to operate the software are contained in the individual Help documents for that Hexagon Geospatial product. The Producer Field Guide provides a brief history of the geoprocessing field, an extensive glossary of terms, and notes about applications for the different processes described. Many of the formulas and algorithms used in Hexagon Geospatial software are included, so that the user can see exactly how each operation works.
