In this post, we will look at a very basic example of reading the raster file including all the bands and looping through the bands to get the statistics (Minimum, … CONTINUE READING
In this tutorial, we will use the MODIS based V6 Terra Vegetation Indices 16-Day Global 250m product. This MODIS NDVI and EVI products are computed from atmospherically corrected bi-directional surface reflectances that have been masked for water, clouds, heavy aerosols, and cloud shadows. We will use this product to create NDVI based threshold classified thematic … CONTINUE READING

Datasets are stored in what’s called a bucket. Sometimes, though it becomes necessary to transfer datasets between one bucket to another bucket. The tutorial … CONTINUE READING
In this document, I will convert the GPS way-points (with photo-link, name, latitude, longitude) into shapefile using arcpy and python modules. Find the example gpx file from this link. Use the following example code and modify according to your need. The photos are in the same folder as the gpx file.… CONTINUE READING
