DIMAP – Spot DIMAP

Driver short name

DIMAP

This is a read-only read for Spot DIMAP described images. To use, select the METADATA.DIM 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.

From GDAL 1.6.0, 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.

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