public class HeatmapProcess extends Object implements VectorProcess
HeatmapSurfaceto compute a heatmap surface over a set of irregular data points as a
GridCoverage. Heatmaps are known more formally as Multivariate Kernel Density Estimation.
The appearance of the heatmap is controlled by the kernel radius, which determines the "radius of influence" of input points. The radius is specified by the radiusPixels parameter, which is in output pixels. Using pixels allows easy estimation of a value which will give a visually effective result, and ensures the heatmap appearance changes to match the zoom level.
By default each input point has weight 1.
Optionally the weights of points may be supplied by an attribute specified by the
All geometry types are allowed as input. For non-point geometries the centroid is used.
To improve performance, the surface grid can be computed at a lower resolution than the requested
output image using the
The grid is upsampled to match the required image size. Upsampling uses Bilinear
Interpolation to maintain visual quality. This gives a large improvement in performance, with
minimal impact on visual quality for small cell sizes (for instance, 10 pixels or less).
To ensure that the computed surface is stable (i.e. does not display obvious edge artifacts under
zooming and panning), the data extent is expanded to be larger than the specified output
extent. The expansion distance is equal to the size of
radiusPixels in the input
Computation of the surface takes places in the CRS of the output. If the data CRS is different to the output CRS, the input points are transformed into the output CRS.
queryBufferparameter should be specified to expand the query extent appropriately. The output raster parameters may be provided from the request extents, using the following SLD environment variables:
