Hi @BereketDM, I have something you might want to try for improving your polygon in ArcMap. It’s essentially a way to get more points to better describe your polygon.
Start with your camtrimmed, cropspecial area of study and run footprintinit on it using the defaults
The default is to walk the image boundary every 100 lines and 100 samples to build up a polygon. You can also make that finer, but that will result in more vertices which might be more than you need. You can also specify an inctype=vertices and ask for a specific number of vertices. Start with the default as that is likely plenty. The polygon information is stored in a table on the file that is not human readable.
Run the program caminfo and have the polygon vertices information reported in a human readable format. The output is not as nice as I would like, but you can get what you need from it.
caminfo from=trimcrop.cub to=info.pvl geometry=false uselabel=true
geometry is true by default, but we don’t need that info now so I set it to false. uselabel is part of the polygon output options and tells the program to use the polygon information already stored on the label (otherwise you can run the polygon process here on the fly, but it is not stored on the image).
Here’s what the GisFootprint information looks like in the Polygon output for caminfo for your images using the camtrim information you supplied me earlier:
GisFootprint = “MULTIPOLYGON (((149.9355977706205465
Those are longitude/latitude pairs and unfortunately not easy to read since they are staggered. There are some ways to get this into other formats, but with so few vertices it probably won’t take too long to put those into the Arc app to build up a polygon from xy data. If this works the way you hope then an easier method of extracting the polygon vertices would be desired since you said you had other areas you wanted to apply this process to.
Let us know how it goes!
