CV/ML/AI for working with auroral video, passive FM radar and more
A few common uses:
Incoherent Scatter Radar
Using raw ISR data:
python Detect.py ~/data/2013-05-01/isr -e .dt3.h5
Process all .AVI in a directory
python Detect.py ~/mydir -e avi
This will find all the .avi files in directory ~/mydir and play them back with analysis.
Process a specific file
python Detect.py ~/mydir/myvideo.avi
DMC sCMOS video
python Detect.py "~/data/DMC2015-11/2015-11-15" -e .fits -p dmc.ini
Hard disk outputs
- PNG figure plot of the number of auroral detections per video frame sampled
- HDF5 file of the data in the PNG plot (so that you can use another program to extract the GB of interesting data from TB file
This program reads any video format available to OpenCV cv2.VideoCapture(), such as most AVI, MPG, MOV, OGV, etc. depending on how your particular OpenCV was compiled. The program also reads our multi-terabyte .DMCdata video files in a proprietary binary format from the HiST project.
It is trivial to adapt the program to ingest NetCDF, HDF5 and many other formats--just contact me.
- Install OpenCV on Python
- install this program:
python -m pip install -e .
