GDAL File Reader
Summary: This process uses the Geospatial Data Abstraction Library (GDAL) for reading in square-gridded data from many different file formats.
- Geospatial File Path (1 Path) The file that this process will read.
- Spatial Reference System (SRS) (0,1 SRS) An optional input that specifies where to position the data on the globe.
- Description: Square-gridded data from the input geospatial file.
Attributes: This process has no attributes.
The Geospatial Data Abstraction Library (GDAL) File Reader is one of the main data input processes for gathering square-gridded data and making it available in a format that can be used by the sampler processes. If you had a file like a GeoTIFF that you wanted to read in WorldView, the first step would be to use this reader process. Then, choose a sampler to get it into a displayable format. Optionally, you could add a cache after the sampler if you wanted to come back to see the data later with a fast recall time.
