Peakspeed Ortho consists of a high performance orthorectification engine running on the Alveo card along with an image orchestration engine running on the host server. Users can expect orthorectification times 100X to 200X faster than their equivalent CPU-based implementations, and batch throughput around 1 GB/s.
The current instant access product is accessible on Nimbix. Please contact Peakspeed for the AWS, Azure and on-premise (CentOS, Ubuntu, or docker) installable options.
This application is containerized and can be easily run in a few minutes in the cloud.
Follow the instructions based on your deployment method.
An access key “cred.json” may be obtained through the Xilinx Acceleration Application Store.
For a quick test, click “SUBMIT” after completing tab “GENERAL” and a sample image will be orthorectified.
1. On tab “GENERAL”,
1.1. Machine type: Select from one of the following machine types currently listed as available from https://status.jarvice.com
1.2. Access Key: Select the “cred.json” file downloaded in step 1 above.
1.3 Run Peakspeed example? Keep this checked to have the Peakspeed example image copied to a the “/peakspeed/” folder at the root of your data drive to quickly show how Peakspeed Ortho works. Uncheck this if you only want to orthorectify your custom images (as configurable on tab “OPTIONAL”).
2. On tab “OPTIONAL”,
2.1. The paths below should all be a relative path from your Nimbix root “/data/” folder – as selected on tab “STORAGE”.
2.1.1. Input folder: Single folder containing your pre-orthorectified image(s) with extensions (.nitf|.ntf|.tif|.tiff) and corresponding .rpb files (e.g. imageName.tif, imageName.rpb (The Free Trial runs a maximum of 25 custom images in a batch)
2.1.2. Output folder: Folder where your orthorectified images should be placed.
2.1.3. SRTM elevation folder: If using SRTM elevation data, enter the path to the .hgt files
2.1.4. DTED elevation folder: If using DTED elevation data, enter the path to the level 0,1,or 2 folder to use.
2.2. Output image prefix: Enter the prefix you would like to have appended to your orthorectified image. Leave blank for “or_”
3. On tab “STORAGE”, select vault folder for your root “/data/” folder in paths above. Keep “Read only” and “Force” unchecked.
4. Click “SUBMIT”; in dialog, validate the auto-termination time for the job; click “OK”
