I'm working with some satellite imagery (LS8) and need the coordinates of the center of each of cell. I clipped down the imagery to a specified spatial extent. From the clipped satellite imagery, I then convert it to a point shapefile, project it to GCS, and do a "Add XY Coordinates" to that shapefile since I need the units in decimal degrees. Is there a workaround this process? Somehow extract the coordinates directly to a raster? On average, it takes about 1.5 hours to process each clipped Landsat Scene.
I attached my code below.
Thanks a million,
do you actually need the coordinates and values of every cell in your clipped raster? or do you just need locations and values from a certain number of locations?
ps... just copy the salient portions of your code and post them with syntax highlighting, downloading a zip is a pain and unzipping is sometimes impossible in some environments.
