I am creating ROI in Clouds using "create a ROI" (polygon) and this warning often shows after i save the ROI. Since the warning says that it will affect the Maximum Likelihood, that is why i delete the ROI that i created. But sometimes there is no warning.

Any advice why this happened? is it the size of the polygon i created? is it necessary to delete it?

The ROI is too small (or too homogeneous) for the Maximum Likelihood algorithm because that ROI has a singular covariance matrix. You should create larger ROIs or don’t use the Maximum Likelihood algorithm in the classification process.

Try to satellite download using SCP plugin only and don't forget to download associated XML files if available, I notice if data downloaded or imported from the external sources are lack in essential statistic files.

  • The problem has already been identified (see accepted answer) two years ago, so it seems pointless to add a guessing answer. Thanks for trying either way and please check out the tour. May 28, 2018 at 11:51
