Ticket #3116 (new enhancement)
GDAL cannot read multiband ArcInfo Binary Grids
|Reported by:||jjr8||Owned by:||warmerdam|
I created a ArcInfo Binary Grid with 5 bands using ArcGIS 9.3.1. GDAL 1.6.0 cannot read it:
C:\>gdalinfo --version GDAL 1.6.0, released 2008/12/04 C:\>gdalinfo c:\AIG_Multiband\ccomp2 ERROR 4: `c:\AIG_Multiband\ccomp2' not recognised as a supported file format. gdalinfo failed - unable to open 'c:\AIG_Multiband\ccomp2'.
ArcCatalog reports the format of c:\AIG_Multiband\ccomp2 is "GRID Stack 7.x". The raster has five bands, all 250 x 250 cells. All of the cells of a given band have the same value, either 0, 1, or 255. (This raster was part of an experiment and does not represent real-world data.)
Frank W indicated that he would like to look at this raster to try to understand the format. It is attached. Thanks for looking.
I have no idea if you want to fix this. It would be helpful to me but I can work around it by using a different format. Please adjust the ticket properties appropriately.
