Driver short name

DIMAP

Driver built-in by default

This driver is built-in by default

This is a read-only read for Spot DIMAP described images. To use, select the METADATA.DIM (DIMAP 1), VOL_PHR.XML (DIMAP 2) or VOL_PNEO.XML (DIMAP 2 VHR-2020) file in a product directory, or the product directory itself.

The imagery is in a distinct imagery file, often a TIFF file, but the DIMAP dataset handles accessing that file, and attaches geolocation and other metadata to the dataset from the metadata xml file.

The content of the <Spectral_Band_Info> node is reported as metadata at the level of the raster band. Note that the content of the Spectral_Band_Info of the first band is still reported as metadata of the dataset, but this should be considered as a deprecated way of getting this information.

For multi-component products, each component will be exposed in a subdataset.

NOTE: Implemented as gdal/frmts/dimap/dimapdataset.cpp.
