GDAL Informations (version 3.0.0)
Currently supported format are GTiff,VRT and netCDF.
If set to yes, a tabular file will be created with a list of all subdatasets. Use this to later perform actions on custom subdata with gdal tranlsate.


What it does

The gdalinfo program lists various information about a GDAL supported raster dataset.

It will report all of the following (if known):

  • The format driver used to access the file.
  • Raster size (in pixels and lines).
  • The coordinate system for the file (in OGC WKT).
  • The geotransform associated with the file (rotational coefficients are currently not reported).
  • Corner coordinates in georeferenced, and if possible lat/long based on the full geotransform (but not GCPs).
  • Ground control points.
  • File wide (including subdatasets) metadata.
  • Band data types.
  • Band color interpretations.
  • Band block size.
  • Band descriptions.
  • Band min/max values (internally known and possibly computed).
  • Band checksum (if computation asked).
  • Band NODATA value.
  • Band overview resolutions available.
  • Band unit type (i.e.. "meters" or "feet" for elevation bands).
  • Band pseudo-color tables.

How to use it

Select from history a suported raster file and choose either Json or Text format for result display.

An additional option can list available subdatasets.
