gdal_calc — gdal_calc.py Command line raster calculator with numpy syntax


gdal_calc.py [-A <filename>] [--A_band] [-B...-Z filename] [other_options]

  -h, --help            show this help message and exit
  --calc=CALC           calculation in gdalnumeric syntax using +-/* or any
                        numpy array functions (i.e. logical_and())
  -A A                  input gdal raster file, note you can use any letter
  --A_band=A_BAND       number of raster band for file A (default 1)
  --outfile=OUTF        output file to generate or fill
                        set output nodata value (Defaults to datatype specific
  --type=TYPE           output datatype, must be one of ['Int32', 'Int16',
                        'Float64', 'UInt16', 'Byte', 'UInt32', 'Float32']
  --format=FORMAT       GDAL format for output file (default 'GTiff')
                        Passes a creation option to the output format driver.
                        Multiple options may be listed. See format specific
                        documentation for legal creation options for each
  --allBands=ALLBANDS   process all bands of given raster (A-Z)
  --overwrite           overwrite output file if it already exists
  --debug               print debugging information


Command line raster calculator with numpy syntax. Use any basic arithmetic supported by numpy arrays such as +-*\ along with logical operators such as >. Note that all files must have the same dimensions, but no projection checking is performed.


add two files together

gdal_calc.py -A input1.tif -B input2.tif --outfile=result.tif --calc="A+B"

average of two layers

gdal_calc.py -A input.tif -B input2.tif --outfile=result.tif --calc="(A+B)/2"

set values of zero and below to null

gdal_calc.py -A input.tif --outfile=result.tif --calc="A*(A>0)" --NoDataValue=0
