A blog that goes from GIS to Remote Sensing, with tutorials and tips especially for open source software. By Luca Congedo, the author of the Semi-Automatic Classification Plugin for QGIS that allows for supervised classifications of Land Cover.
I'm glad to release a new update of the Semi-Automatic Classification Plugin v. 6.3.0. This version includes some new features and bug fixing.
Following the changelog:
-added SWIR1 and SWIR2 variables in Band calc -added NBR calculation in Band calc index calculation -fixed issue with OSM tile service -fixed issue with USGS Spectral Library v.6 -fixed issue with band set creation after multiple image download -fixed issue with band calc name of outputs
I'm very happy to release a new version of the Semi-Automatic OS v. 6, a free virtual machine based on Debian Linux, for the land cover classification of remote sensing images. It includes the Semi-Automatic Classification Plugin (SCP) and QGIS, already configured along with all the required dependencies (OGR, GDAL, Numpy, SciPy, and Matplotlib).
This post is to wish you all a very happy new year! 2018 has been a great year for the Semi-Automatic Classification Plugin (SCP), with the release of the version 6 for QGIS 3. I'm very grateful to all the people who have contributed to this project, through their work translating the interface and the user manual, fixing bugs and reporting issues, and donating.
In 2019 I'll continue the development of the SCP, in particular designing the new version 7 (which should be released in the early 2020), and of course maintaining the version 6. In the new version 7 I'll focus on the development of new features for automating and improving the processing of remote sensing images, in particular:
development of parallel processing in order to reduce the computational time;
integration with ESA SNAP software for the preprocessing of Sentinel-2 images;
development of standalone APIs to use the tools through the command line or Python;
improvement of the user interface.
I'll consider updating the version 6 with some of these new features during 2019. And of course I'll write new tutorials about applications and case studies. Again, I wish you a very happy new year!

The interface and the user manual of SCP are developed in English (user manual available at this link). However, it is possible to translate the interface into any language. I'm very glad to announce the availability of the French translation of the SCP interface. The whole interface has been translated by Sebastien Peillet(geomatician and developer, currently at Maison de la Télédétection, UMR TETIS). Many thanks to Sebastien Peillet for his excellent work, which will be very helpful to many people. The French translation is available in the latest update of SCP v. 6.2.5.
The SCP translated in French
Again, many thanks to Sebastien Peillet and to all the volunteers that have translated SCP and the user manual. Other language translations are still incomplete. I invite you to help translating SCP into your language. It is possible to easily translate the user manual to any language, because it is written in reStructuredText as markup language (using Sphinx). Therefore, your contribution is fundamental for the translation of the manual to your language.
