convertmodis module

Convert MODIS HDF file to GeoTiff file or create a HDF mosaic file for several tiles using Modis Reprojection Tools.

Classes:

Functions:

pymodis.convertmodis.checkMRTpath(mrtpath)[source]

Function to check if MRT path it correct

Parameters:mrtpath (str) – the path to MRT directory
Returns:The path to ‘bin’ and ‘data’ directory inside MRT path
class pymodis.convertmodis.convertModis(hdfname, confile, mrtpath)[source]

A class to convert modis data from hdf to tif using resample (from MRT tools)

Parameters:
  • hdfname (str) – the full path to the hdf file
  • confile (str) – the full path to the paramater file
  • mrtpath (str) – the full path to mrt directory which contains the bin and data directories
executable()[source]

Return the executable of resample MRT software

run(quiet=False)[source]

Exec the convertion process

class pymodis.convertmodis.createMosaic(listfile, outprefix, mrtpath, subset=False)[source]

A class to convert several MODIS tiles into a mosaic

Parameters:
  • listfile (str) – the path to file with the list of HDF MODIS file
  • outprefix (str) – the prefix for output files
  • mrtpath (str) – the full path to mrt directory which contains the bin and data directories
  • subset (str) – a string composed by 1 and 0 according with the layer to mosaic. The string should something like ‘1 0 1 0 0 0 0’
executable()[source]

Return the executable of mrtmosaic MRT software

run(quiet=False)[source]
