I am trying to get a graph running that produces Sentinel-1 GRD backscatter images in decibels. Regions outside what is imaged should get a NaN (in Float32 format), but persistently get a “0”. This is bad, as 0 is a perfectly valid value and should definitely not be used as no-data value. I tried to uncheck the “no-data value used” in the graph, I tried to set it to “0”, but none of these have any effect. Pixels in the exported image are still “0”. Any idea what I can do?
So, no suggestions? Someone put this thread under s1tbx, which I think is a pity since it is a general SNAP issue I face; no data in SNAP becomes 0 in an exported image, no matter the format.
I did not test it but if you look at the metadata file (the dim one), you can observe that there is a Xml tag corresponding to no-data value. Maybe compare this with a generated file created by SNAP-Desktop and a file generated using GPT.

@kristofvt Did you find a solution for the issue you reported?
Could you provide more details (processing chain, product, graph etc.) of your test so that we can repeat the problem? Thanks.
