Can anyone suggest any good python books or tutorials for using satellite imagery?

Thanks for responding. Some of the processing I would like to do include:
Import a hdf file, open calibrated data (VSWIR to TIR) and display image using different band combinations. From the hdf open the pixel latitude and longitude and georeference the image. Process the images to apparent reflectance, emissivity and brightness temperature Process the images to certain indices using simple band math. Overlay a vector file and calculate the mean values of the raster within the vector region. I would like to do this for many different files images.

Hi,

Thanks for responding. Some of the processing I would like to do include: This is fairly straightforward stuff (in principle!). You can use GDAL's python bindings to open HDF files (your data looks like ASTER), and then use matplotlib to plot colour composites. Any further image manipulations are quite easy as everything is an array. You might need to watch memory usage, and do image processing by blocks.

Thanks. Are there any books/tutorials/examples on these and other processing steps?

But the GFOSS GRASS has al modules/tool chains you need http://grass.osgeo.org/ It's a GIS programme which can be used within a scriptable environment: http://grass.osgeo.org/wiki/GRASS_and_Python Good luck. _______________________________________________ SciPyUser mailing list [hidden email] http://mail.scipy.org/mailman/listinfo/scipyuser 
Thanks for getting back to me, but the only image processing tutorial for GRASS and python that I could find from that link was one that said it is 'slightly outdated'. I am looking for lots of examples as I am only a beginner. I have access to all the ENthought tools, can this all be done in SciPy?? Specifically for satellite and airborne remotely sensed data.
Really looking for examples/tutorials/books. Thanks On Mon, Aug 17, 2009 at 3:37 PM, Tim Michelsen <[hidden email]> wrote: questions anon schrieb: _______________________________________________ SciPyUser mailing list [hidden email] http://mail.scipy.org/mailman/listinfo/scipyuser

Thanks for responding. Some of the processing I would like to do include: But for the last point, most of the stuff is demonstrated in a web page I've just put up. I focus on using GDAL in combination with the scipy/numpy/pylab stack. <http://sites.google.com/site/spatialpython/processingasterwithpythonnumpyandgdal> The last point is relatively straightforward to do with python, but I haven't yet got round to writing it up. Hope it helps, Jose _______________________________________________ SciPyUser mailing list [hidden email] http://mail.scipy.org/mailman/listinfo/scipyuser

Due to  as I think  historical reasons  the remote sensing commuity has been using IDL for long. See for instance this here: http://radartools.berlios.de/ Is this waht you are aiming at? Do you neet just to process some data (use GRASS standalone) or want to set up a automatic processing chain? You could do thins python or bash or ... after your algorithms prove to give results. The books and examples really depend on where you wanna go and what your topic is. Keep us posted! _______________________________________________ SciPyUser mailing list [hidden email] http://mail.scipy.org/mailman/listinfo/scipyuser 
Thanks again.
The example that Jose sent through is really what I am looking for. I haven't had a chance to try it yet, but those are the steps I am looking to use. I am very much a beginner at programming so any examples like this are greatly appreciated. Thanks again Sarah On Tue, Aug 18, 2009 at 11:09 AM, Tim Michelsen <[hidden email]> wrote:

Hello,
I liked Jose's examples. As I work with imagery here and there, I got interested and checked it out myself. Here is what I found: Howard Butler (http://twitter.com/howardbutler) had given a great tutorial together with Sean Gilles [3] at OSGEO 2005 [1] . Unfortunately, materials have been taken offline. I have 6 PDF files of these which I can mail you if you sent me a private mail. Another one seems to be here: Shoaib Burq  Open Source Python GIS Hacks http://www.osdc.com.au/papers/tutorials.html#open and materials at: http://geospatial.nomadlabs.com/2006/12/05/opensourcedevelopersconference2006melbourneaustralia/ On the other hand: why are you trying to reinvent? FOSS4G or OSGEO have evolved as the body for this stuff: * http://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/OSGeo_Python_Library * http://grass.osgeo.org/wiki/GRASS_and_Python * more on the mailing list: http://n2.nabble.com/forum/Search.jtp?forum=1837860&local=y&query=python * nearly all programs at http://www.osgeo.org/ have a python or jython interface others have gatherd around: * http://pywps.wald.intevation.org/ * http://pywms.wald.intevation.org/ @Jose and others: Jose did some stuff nice python & gdal  mpl stuff.

Dear Tim,
I am doing some meteorological data analysis and I am interested also in the Howard Butler's tutorial, could you please send to me also those 6 PDF files, I would appreciate it very much.

the Howard Butler's tutorial, could you please send to me also those 6 PDF files, I would appreciate it very much. I have asked the permission of the authors to redistribute and got. The files are now here: http://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/Educational_Content_Inventory#OSGEO_2005:_Open_Source_Python_GIS_Hacks Happy hacking! _______________________________________________ SciPyUser mailing list [hidden email] http://mail.scipy.org/mailman/listinfo/scipyuser

FYI:
A new mailing list was created for the Python & geoprocessing stuff: Unofficial Python GIS SIG http://groups.google.com/group/pythongissig and a nice tutorial was posted on that list, too: Geoprocessing with Python using Open Source GIS http://www.gis.usu.edu/~chrisg/python/ Best, Timmie _______________________________________________ SciPyUser mailing list [hidden email] http://mail.scipy.org/mailman/listinfo/scipyuser
