i.in.spotvgt - Imports SPOT VGT NDVI data into a raster map.
imagery, import, NDVI, SPOT
i.in.spotvgt [-a] input=name [output=name] [--overwrite] [--help] [--verbose] [--quiet] [--ui]
i.in.spotvgt imports SPOT Vegetation (1km, global) NDVI data sets. After import the digital numbers (DN) are remapped to VEGETATION NDVI values and the NDVI color table is applied. The imported DN map is removed after remapping.
Apparently missing raster cells due to bad pixel quality are reconstructed by the SPOT operating team in the NDVI file. The differences between the filtered (-a flag) and raw NDVI map should be compared.
The SPOT VGT files are delivered in HDF4 (Hierarchical Data Format Release 4) format. It is required to have the GDAL libraries installed with HDF4 support.
Export of entire world SPOT VGT maps¶
When working with SPOT VGT with entire world extent, it is
recommended to zoom to w=180W and e=180E instead of using the
map extent for map export. These entire world SPOT VGT data are exceeding
-180.0 degree which can lead to unhelpful large East-West coordinates in the
exported file. It is also recommended to then use an export command which
respects the user settings. Example:
# import: i.in.spotvgt 0001_NDV.HDF # export: g.region w=180W e=180E n=75:00:16.071429N s=56:00:16.069919S res=0:00:32.142857 -p r.out.gdal 0001_NDV format=GTiff out=spotndvi.tif
