CEOS – CEOS Image

Driver short name

CEOS

This is a simple, read-only reader for ceos image files. To use, select the main imagery file. This driver reads only the image data, and does not capture any metadata, or georeferencing.

This driver is known to work with CEOS data produced by Spot Image, but will have problems with many other data sources. In particular, it will only work with eight bit unsigned data.

See the separate SAR_CEOS driver for access to SAR CEOS data products.

NOTE: Implemented as gdal/frmts/ceos/ceosdataset.cpp.
