Pleiades image .xml file

Hi all,

I am trying to import a Pleiades image by File / Import / Optical Sensors / Pleiades / Pleiades

When I navigate to the folder containing the Pleiades .xml file, the .xml file is greyed out and I am unable to select it. Same for both MS and pan images.

SNAP version 9.0.0, the Pleiades images are bundles of PAN + multispectral reflectance products.

I am able to open the .TIF files by File / Open. When I do this, the .TIF file name appears as “geotiff” in the product explorer. These are three different files from three different dates:

Has anyone else experienced this and is this how Pleiades are expected to behave?

Try with File → Open and select the VOL_PHR.XML file.

Thanks for the tip Oana,

I tried opening the VOL_PHR.XML file and I get this exception:

java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: The Product ‘ORTHO P DS_PHR1A_202109171210125_FR1_PX_W011N52_1207_00653’ already contains a raster with the name ‘Area_Of_Interest Mask_2m’.

We will look into it, I created a ticket in our issue tracker: SIITBX-493.
