Information about per-pixel geocoding

Dear SNAP team,

Would it be possible to get more information about the per-pixel geocoding done by SNAP?
I found this page: PixelGeoCoding (SNAP Engine API) but it is quite limited. Is there any other document describing it?


Yes, it is true there is not much information. And actually the PixelGeoCoding class is also deprecated sind SNAP 8. PixelGeoCoding (SNAP 8 Engine API).
It has been replaced by ComponentGeoCoding (SNAP Engine API). This is even less documented.
I have no official document. But I can attach documents for our own internal use. Not sure if they are of much help.

You can also have a look at the code: snap-engine/snap-core/src/main/java/org/esa/snap/core/dataio/geocoding at master · senbox-org/snap-engine (
Here you find the resent implementation.
