NAME
gdallocationinfo - gdallocationinfo raster query tool SYNOPSIS
Usage: gdallocationinfo [--help-general] [-xml] [-lifonly] [-valonly] [-b band]* [-l_srs srs_def] [-geoloc] [-wgs84] srcfile [x y] DESCRIPTION
The gdallocationinfo utility provide a mechanism to query information about a pixel given it's location in one of a variety of coordinate systems. Several reporting options are provided. -xml: The output report will be XML formatted for convenient post processing. -lifonly: The only output is filenames production from the LocationInfo request against the database (ie. for identifying impacted file from VRT). -valonly: The only output is the pixel values of the selected pixel on each of the selected bands. -b band: Selects a band to query. Multiple bands can be listed. By default all bands are queried. -l_srs srs def: The coordinate system of the input x, y location. -geoloc: Indicates input x,y points are in the georeferencing system of the image. -wgs84: Indicates input x,y points are WGS84 long, lat. srcfile: The source GDAL raster datasource name. x: X location of target pixel. By default the coordinate system is pixel/line unless -l_srs, -wgs84 or -geoloc supplied. y: Y location of target pixel. By default the coordinate system is pixel/line unless -l_srs, -wgs84 or -geoloc supplied. This utility is intended to provide a variety of information about a pixel. Currently it reports three things: o The location of the pixel in pixel/line space. o The result of a LocationInfo metadata query against the datasource - currently this is only implemented for VRT files which will report the file(s) used to satisfy requests for that pixel. o The raster pixel value of that pixel for all or a subset of the bands. o The unscaled pixel value if a Scale and/or Offset apply to the band. The pixel selected is requested by x/y coordinate on the commandline, or read from stdin. More than one coordinate pair can be supplied when reading coordinatesis from stdin. By default pixel/line coordinates are expected. However with use of the -geoloc, -wgs84, or -l_srs switches it is possible to specify the location in other coordinate systems. The default report is in a human readable text format. It is possible to instead request xml output with the -xml switch. For scripting purposes, the -valonly and -lifonly switches are provided to restrict output to the actual pixel values, or the LocationInfo files identified for the pixel. It is anticipated that additional reporting capabilities will be added to gdallocationinfo in the future. EXAMPLE
Simple example reporting on pixel (256,256) on the file utm.tif. $ gdallocationinfo utm.tif 256 256 Report: Location: (256P,256L) Band 1: Value: 115 Query a VRT file providing the location in WGS84, and getting the result in xml. $ gdallocationinfo -xml -wgs84 utm.vrt -117.5 33.75 <Report pixel="217" line="282"> <BandReport band="1"> <LocationInfo> <File>utm.tif</File> </LocationInfo> <Value>16</Value> </BandReport> </Report> AUTHORS

NAME
gdal_contour - gdal_contour builds vector contour lines from a raster elevation model SYNOPSIS
Usage: gdal_contour [-b <band>] [-a <attribute_name>] [-3d] [-inodata] [-snodata n] [-f <formatname>] [-i <interval>] [-off <offset>] [-fl <level> <level>...] [-nln <outlayername>] <src_filename> <dst_filename> DESCRIPTION
This program generates a vector contour file from the input raster elevation model (DEM). Starting from version 1.7 the contour line-strings will be oriented consistently. The high side will be on the right, i.e. a line string goes clockwise around a top. -b band: picks a particular band to get the DEM from. Defaults to band 1. -a name: provides a name for the attribute in which to put the elevation. If not provided no elevation attribute is attached. -3d: Force production of 3D vectors instead of 2D. Includes elevation at every vertex. -inodata: Ignore any nodata value implied in the dataset - treat all values as valid. -snodata value: Input pixel value to treat as 'nodata'. -f format: create output in a particular format, default is shapefiles. -i interval: elevation interval between contours. -off offset: Offset from zero relative to which to interpret intervals. -fl level: Name one or more 'fixed levels' to extract. -nln outlayername: Provide a name for the output vector layer. Defaults to 'contour'. EXAMPLE
This would create 10meter contours from the DEM data in dem.tif and produce a shapefile in contour.shp/shx/dbf with the contour elevations in the 'elev' attribute. gdal_contour -a elev dem.tif contour.shp -i 10.0 AUTHORS
