ossim-info

ossim-info is a command line application used to display metadata for imagery, maps, terrain, and vector data. Output from ossim-info may include geometry information (corner coordinates, projection, etc), radiometry information (number of bands, bits per pixel, etc), and general file metadata (acquisition date, title, description, etc).

Usage

ossim-info [options] <inputFile>

                          files for multi image file formats
  --ossim-logfile         takes a logfile as an argument.  All output messages
                          are redirected to the specified log file.  By default
                          there is no log file and all messages are enabled.

    ossim-info -p -s wge ./myfile.tif
      prints out only image projection information and shifts to wgs84

    ossim-info -p -i ./myfile.tif
      prints out both image and projection information

    ossim-info -p -i ./myfile.tif -o ./myfile.geom
      writes geometry file with both image and projection information

    ossim-info -p -i ./myfile.tif -v -o ./myfile.geom
      writes geometry file with both image and projection information
      while overwriting existing .geom file.

    ossim-info -f XML ./myfile.tif
      prints out image and projection information as an XML document

    ossim-info -d myfile.ntf
      Dumps all metadata available from file (e.g. nitf and tiff tags).

      Dumps all metadata available from file (e.g. nitf and tiff tags).

    ossim-info --dno a.toc

      Metadata dump along with image and projection information.

    ossim-info -i -p --dno a.toc
      Includes image and projection information along with ancillary 
      metadata.  Skips any entries that might be considered overviews.
