All the images must be in the same coordinate system and have a matching number of bands, but they may... gdal_retile This utility will retile a set of input tile(s). All the input tile(s) must be georeferenced in the same coordinate system and have a matching number of bands... gdal_sieve The gdal_sieve.py script removes raster polygons smaller than a provided threshold size (in pixels) and replaces replaces them with the pixel value of the... pct2rgb This utility will convert a pseudo-color band on the input file into an output RGB file of the desired format. rgb2pct This utility will compute an optimal pseudo-color table for a given RGB image using a median cut algorithm on a downsampled RGB histogram. Then it converts the...
