I am trying to process a lot of .SEN3 folders and so am trying to speed up the process. Specifically I am trying to get the max and min latitude and longitude from a .SEN3 folder to quickly decide whether the folder is worth further investigation.
A little background: I am interested only in images that cover Greenland (specifically the ground weather stations on Greenland) however we are unaware before processing whether an image contains Greenland or is of the other side of the world. Presently I am using a python program that checks for each and every one of the 25 weather stations. The amount of time this takes makes the process untenable.
I noticed that when loading the geo_coordinates.nc file into QGIS a file named geo_coordinates.nc.aux.xml is created. Within this file is a max and min of the images latitude and longitude.
Is there a way to get this data?
Many thanks, Thomas.
