TerraSAR -> GeoTIFF Conversion

Converts TerraSAR EEC data to GeoTIFF data format and optionally clips the image.


A processing block that converts TerraSAR-X EEC images to the GeoTIFF format.

See this block on the marketplace.

How it works

bboxarray of integers / required if
Required if intersects isn't specified.
A bounding box to use as an AOI. Will clip to scenes that intersect with this box.
intersectsobject / required if
Required if bbox isn't specified.
A GeoJSON geometry to use as an AOI. Will clip to scenes that intersect with this geometry.
clip_to_aoiboolean / required
Whether the specified AOI should be clipped before processing:
  • true — The AOI should be clipped first.
  • false — The full scene should be processed.
The default value is false.
