input=name [required]

Name of input ASTER image

proctype=string [required]

ASTER imagery processing type (Level 1A, Level 1B, or relative DEM)
Options: L1A, L1B, DEM
Default: L1B

band=string [required]

List L1A or L1B band to translate (1,2,3n,...), or enter ’all’ to translate all bands
Default: all

output=name [required]

Base name for output raster map (band number will be appended to base name)


r.in.aster rectifies, georeferences, and imports Terra-ASTER imagery to current location using gdalwarp, hdf 4, and r.in.gdal, using projection parameters from g.proj. It can import Level 1A, Level 1B, and relative DEM products.

The program may be run interactively or non-interactively from the command line. In either case, the user must specify an input *.hdf file name, the type of processing used, the image band to import, and an output GRASS raster map name.

The type parameter can take values of L1A, L1B, or DEM.

The band parameter can take values of 1, 2, 3n, 3b, 4-14


r.in.aster requires GDAL library to be in the user’s path and the hdf 4 driver to be installed. The GDAL library must be compiled with hdf support.
