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.

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