listgeo — dump geotiff metadata


listgeo [-tfw] [-no_norm] [-proj4] [-t DIR] file


The program listgeo takes a GeoTIFF file as input and dumps to the standard  output a GeoTIFF "metadata" file, which is human readable, and may also be  used as input to other programs which use the "GTIFImport" routine, such as  geotifcp.


listgeo accepts the following options:


report lat/long corners in decimal degrees instead of DMS


Generate a .tfw (ESRI TIFF World) file for the target file


Don't report 'normalized' parameter values


Report PROJ.4 equivelent projection definition

-t DIR

force to look in DIR for EPSG_CVS files, overriding default behaviour
