What does Resample.exe do?

#1
Hi, Can anybody give me some insight and guidance as to what resample.exe does exactly? Are there any tools out there that does what it does? I use FSEarthTiles, and it does have a resample phase, and yet it still exports processes to resample. I am wanting this information for a possible project.

Also, I have looked for the source code for FSEarthTiles, but the links have closed. Does anyone have it? I have TileProxy source, or most of it.

What I am considering is a HLSL version of resample. I use FSEarthTiles a lot. Years ago it was download speeds that were a bottleneck. But today, it's the resample phase that takes up the bulk of the time. I don't know exactly what resample.exe does, make layers at different resolutions for different LOD? I am wondering if that can be sped up using HLSL.

OK. Looking at that MSDN felt like walking up to a skyscraper. But here's the thing. I only want it to do one thing, which is to work with FSEarthTiles. Start with that and then maybe I can break it out for other purposes.

So first I'll write a little script resample.exe to see exactly what FSEarthTiles is passing to it for parameters, since I don't have the source. Then I'll take a look at what the breakdown of the product of resamples work is. Next see if any of that can be done with CUDA possibly more efficiently. Sometime in there I've got to actually work and get paid and do honey do lists.

But any help or direction would be really nice. The source for FSET would be awesome, the author put it out there but the links are down. I already have a nice bit of software working around FSET, might be nice to incorporate it.

I'll do this first stuff with AutoHotKey. I hear the baby is awake. L8r

In case of doubt, whip the SDK documentation out*.

https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc707102.aspx#TheResampleTool


*Every dev should have this tattooed on their lower arm or left butt cheek.
I was thinking of how to make a negative image screened sun filter to use for "tanning" the FS SDK Resample documentation onto my abdomen during a mid-winter tropical vacation, but then I realized that ImageTool will only 'vertically flip' images and cannot 'horizontally flip' images. :(

Is there a wiki on how to use a 3rd party graphics utility to 'horizontally flip' images ? :oops:

Assuming I were successful in implementing such a work-flow and resulting 'tanned' image, I will of course need to re-configure a laptop computer for use in front of a large mirror in order to correctly read the resulting documentation after my vacation. ;)

< Just kidding, of course ! > :laughing:


But, come to think of it, a mid-winter tropical vacation seems like an increasingly interesting idea right about now. :cool:

Resample can perform several different tasks for creation of scenery content in FS, one of which is creating photo-realistic terrain textures; it appears your primary interest is in using Resample to create such photo-realistic terrain textures.


It is easiest, IMHO, to do this via SBuilderX which offers a choice of several different aerial imagery tile-servers to download from via a 3rd party DLL which is updated periodically.

Is there a aerial imagery tile-server in FSET that you need / want access to, which thus far is not available via SBuilderX ? :scratchch


FYI: Part of the reason Resample takes so long "to do that voodoo that it 'do' so well" is, IIUC, it is performing double-precision computation of coordinates in the QMID grid for the FS 3D "curved earth" world model onto which it "drapes" the terrain textures as a special type of land class, with both the placement instructions and aerial imagery textures ...all inside a 1-piece output BGL.

I have downloaded all of the continental US at 4m/pixel, and about 1/4 of it at 1m/pixel using FSET. And there are many major cities at 30cm. I have a suite of applications I've put together to help organize the downloads. What does SBuilder offer?

I can see that double precision is out for me. Even though I have 2 GTX 780s in SLI, they don't do double precision any better than the CPU. They're castrated Titans after all. But I really don't know what I'm talking about at first glance here. Anything to add?

Assuming you have a specifically-structured Geo-referencing *.TXT file in the same folder as the BMPs downloaded by FSET, you can simply utilize SBuilderX's "Add Map from Disk" feature:

SBuilderX Menu > File > Add Map > From Disk


NOTE: For more info on this process, see:

SBuilderX v3.14 64-bit download URL:

Hope this helps a bit more ! :)

Taking a closer look, double precision on the GPU may have an 8x advantage. Not sure yet. But for that I'd go for it.

Thanks Gary, that's great information. I'll work on getting through it.

CompressionQuality must be between %d and %d.

Error parsing LOD.

Maximum LOD is larger than %u.
Minimum LOD is larger than %u.

Resample completed successfully.
I was particularly 'encouraged' by the apparent inclusion of FAX image processing code (derived from a MS_Fax DLL ?). :scratchch

Hmmm... Maybe now I can FAX Resample input data from a laptop on a beach during a mid-winter tropical vacation ? :D


Hope this might help with better understanding FSX SDK Resample ! :cool:

Posted this in your other thread; not sure if you've taken a look:

On a high level resample converts georectified raster imagery (e.g. orthoimagery or DEM) into a BGL file (e.g. photoscenery or mesh). BGL files can contain different types of data -- in addition to photoscenery or mesh, BGLs can contain others things, including (but not limited to) airport facility data, airspace and navaid data, scenery object placement data, vector data, traffic schedules, model data -- the list goes on and on.

You'll probably want to take a look at the overview on the BGL file format available on the FSDeveloper wiki (http://www.fsdeveloper.com/wiki/index.php?title=BGL_File_Format) as well as this post by theisomizer (http://www.fsdeveloper.com/forum/th...porting-vector-data.432918/page-3#post-707786).
