NDF – NLAPS Data Format

Driver short name


GDAL has limited support for reading NLAPS Data Format files. This is a format primarily used by the Eros Data Center for distribution of Landsat data. NDF datasets consist of a header file (often with the extension .H1) and one or more associated raw data files (often .I1, .I2, …). To open a dataset select the header file, often with the extension .H1, .H2 or .HD.

The NDF driver only supports 8bit data. The only supported projection is UTM. NDF version 1 (NDF_VERSION=0.00) and NDF version 2 are both supported.

NOTE: Implemented as gdal/frmts/raw/ndfdataset.cpp.
