Matera - Day 2


After a surprisingly swift intro to Linux and bash the day will evolve around the GDAL library as well as the - relatively obscure - pktools.

Session 1 - gdal

EPSG / Spatial Referece Information

“The VRT driver is a format driver for GDAL that allows a virtual GDAL dataset to be composed from other GDAL datasets with repositioning, and algorithms potentially applied as well as various kinds of metadata altered or added.”

Session 2 - gdal, bash scripting

Session 3 - pktools

pktools are based on gdal but go further in many ways; e.g. extract the bounding box coords without grepping or awking. Written in C++, good documentation, relatively narrow focus.

Session 4 - openforis oft-tools
