HEG (HDF-EOS to GeoTIFF converter)
Entry ID: HEG


Summary
Abstract: The HDF-EOS To GeoTIFF Conversion Tool (HEG) is a tool developed to allow a user to reformat, re-project and perform stitching/mosaicing and subsetting operations on HDF-EOS objects. The output GeoTIFF file is ingestible into commonly used GIS applications. HEG will also write to HDF-EOS Grid & SWATH formats (i.e for Subsetting purposes) and native (or raw) binary. HEG presently works with MODIS (AQUA and TERRA), ASTER, MISR, AIRS, and AMSR-E HDF-EOS data sets.It also handles OMI HDF-EOS5 grid, and SMAP L3/L4 HDF5 data sets.

Quality Nothing major that we know of at this point, except that GUI does
not get rid of the memory of dimension sizes for previously viewed
image of a different product, that result in incorrect output image
of the requested field (Closing and reopening GUI cures the problem!).

If you find any bugs, please let us know ASAP. We like to keep
the code as stable as possible which can be difficult with support
of a large number of data products and quite a bit of functionality
in the software. We appreciate your help!
