Creating masks from vector layers for 100% overlapping pixels only


#1

Hi,

I am currently working on small scale pond systems with sentinel 2 data. I have .SHP polygons of the ponds I wish to analyse, but in order to limit the amount of land distorting the pixel values, I wish to exclude all pixels that are not 100% overlapping with the vector polygons.

currently, the resulting mask looks like this :

I would require the mask to look like this :

Is there anyway to change the vector to mask parameters to do so?
Thank you for your help.

Ok, so if I understand correctly, pixels that are at most 50% overlapping will be inlcuded in the mask.

I will try shrinking the polygons by a buffer of 5m (size of half a pixel) so that should make sure that only the pixels fully included originally will be kept.

The decision to consider a pixel or is is if the centre point of the pixel is inside the polygon. Which is probably almost the same as a minimum of 50% overlap.
