Hi, I'm trying to translate some DEM 75 files in SDTS format into a
The files come in a tar file with 18 files that have the extension .ddf
The web page for gdal_translate indicates that it supports SDTS but I
can't figure out how to use get it to work.
For instance, I'm trying the largest one:
>> gdal_translate PEC0CEL0.DDF testoutput.tif
>> GDALOpen failed - 4
>> 'PEC0CEL0.DDF' not recognized as a supported dataset name
I've also tried to pass in the entire folder and to use the -sds
option, but to no avail.
I don't need to retain any georeferencing, I just need a preview image.
Any ideas (using gdal_translate or another tool)?
