Raster/Vector processing using GDAL/OGR libraries

This workshop introduces students to the powerful Geospatial Data Abstraction Library (GDAL) to manipulate raster and vector files for Geographic Information Systems and Remote Sensing analysis. You will use simple Bash scripts to automate many common geo-data processing tasks such as cropping and re-projecting, mosaicing, and filtering images. You will learn how to script processes for complex geo-functions.

 

This workshop assumes prior knowledge of Bash and basic Linux commands (See the Practical Introduction to Linux Bootcamp) and basic knowledge of Geographic Information Systems and Remote Sensing concepts (projection, spectral signature, etc…).
