Hi all, I need to create high-quality maps for publication from
.dim files. I tried SNAP and QGIS, but facing some issues, any suggestions?
Save session. When save many
.dimfiles as a “project”/“session”, it cannot reopen like projects in GIS software: my image views are lost, same for layer/mask settings, drawn lines, etc. A previous discussion mentioned this but not solved yet?
then I tried to export
.dimfiles to QGIS for mapping. the obstacles then are:
.dimfiles are usually not directly supported by GIS software. I need to export
geotiffin most cases, which add extra work.
dimhandles NaN and data types differently, and I face issues sometimes (or maybe I did not set it correctly)
- even if able to export
geotifffiles, the unique
dimmasks (i.e., directly set mask as
expressionin property) are not carried in exported
tifffiles, and much work further in GIS to reproduce similar
.dimimages with correctly masked areas.
- What is the solution with
I previously I asked a similar question: whether SNAP will develop more functions in mapping? answer seems a “no”. current basic export functions in SNAP are fine for occasional use, but insufficient for high-quality mapping. Then what would a feasible approach to visualize
.dimfiles? I mean to produce high-quality figures, can revisit and modify map details(colours, extent, map elements, etc)
