Hi all. I just wanted to note that there seems to be a significant performance regression with the Terrain Flattening routine after version S1TBX v6.0.3
When using the ‘re-grid method = True’ the following performance was noted between versions (times are for entire processing chain for two assembled slices):
v6.0.3 = 1h 15m
v6.0.5 = 4h 15m
‘regrid = False’ seems to be unaffected.
The resulting data of both appear to be similar, but pixel values vary slightly, implying there has been some change to the routine. Additionally, the terminal output now prints a large amount of the following lines when doing the correction:
x = 2440.0, y = 420.0, lat = 54.249826797897356, lon = -4.856447786383597, iter = 1, x' = 2440.0088500976562, y' = 420.00657359566435 x = 2460.0, y = 420.0, lat = 54.25018262793482, lon = -4.853443432414015, iter = 1, x' = 2460.0003089904785, y' = 420.00683590245256 x = 2480.0, y = 420.0, lat = 54.25053837834226, lon = -4.8504390507663615, iter = 1, x' = 2479.991767883301, y' = 420.0070982092408
I read that there is expected to be a re-work of the terrain flattening routine at some point in the future, but ideally I’d like to reduce processing time as soon as possible to the previous state.
Is there anywhere that I can see the changelog for minor version releases? I would like to know what has been updated to this routine since 6.0.3
Also, is there any way of rolling back the toolbox to a specific version? Though I realise this might not be advised if the latest version includes other fixes.
