Trimbles eCognition Architect enables non-technical professionals such as vegetation mapping experts, urban planners or foresters to leverage eCognition technology. Users can easily configure, calibrate and execute image analysis workflows created in eCognition Developer.

Within eCognition Developer you can create so called ‘Architect Applications’, which is a reduced User Interface, where the User has the possibility to tweak and execute Rule Sets in a guided way.

If you want to create or use an Architect application you can use eCognition Developer to do so. If you just want to use an Architect Application, you can just start eCognition Architect. In opposite to eCognition Developer, eCognition Architect has no access to the Process Tree and the class hierarchy. Only a predefined Action Library can be loaded, configured and executed.

Here is a video series which will get you started with eCognition Architect Applications!
