Program to convert cubes to PDS3 or PDS4 image files.
For PDS4, If available, Instrument and Mapping information will be written to the detached output PDS4 formatted xml label file.
Not all values in the generated PDS4 labels can be determined automatically by ISIS3, and some must be updated by the user (by opening up the xml label output by this application and editing it with a text editor) for the generated label to be PDS4 compliant. The values UNK (unknown) and TBD (to be determined) are used as placeholders in the generated label. TBD values must be replaced by the user for the output label to be PDS4 compliant. Some of these TBDs can only be replaced with one of several specific enumerated values to meet compliancy. These possible values can be found in the PDS 4 Information Model Specification in the Value/Class column of the table for the associated tag or in the index at the end of the document. Searching this page for the name of the field you need to determine a value for is recommended.
For example: For a cube with map-projected data, ISIS3 will populate planar_coordinate encoding_method with a value on its own, but if it did not and instead had "TBD", we would find at planar_coordinate_coding_method that there are 3 possible values: 'Coordinate Pair', 'Distance and Bearing', 'Row and Column'.
This parameter is used to select one of three ways to stretch
(or map) the input pixels. They are NONE, LINEAR, or MANUAL.
No stretch is performed.
A minimum and maximum are automatically computed based on
the statistics of the selected input band. A histogram of the band
is used to pick the minimum at 0.5% of the data and the maximum
at 99.5% of the data. Input pixels less than or equal to the
minimum are stretched to black while pixels greater than the or
equal to the maximum are stretched to white. A linear mapping
occurs between the minimum and maximum.
This option allows you to pick your own stretch. You must
enter a value for MINIMUM and MAXIMUM input pixel.
This parameter is used to select one whether the output will be
streamed starting with the most significant byte (MSB) or starting
with the least significant bytes (LSB). The choice should be made by
the user depending upon the format read by the system architecture
from which they plan to read the raw data.
Least significant byte
The least significant byte will be the first byte output.
Most significant byte
The most significant byte will be the first byte output.
