I recently downloaded a dataset from a Chinese geodata site (Global Change Research Data Publishing & Repository )
The published data is in the for of a .TIF raster file with some metadata:
The data looks something like this (Population density per KM)
Apparently this dataset was published in ArcGIS which I found a reference to in XXX.tif.aux.xml. The rest of the metadata files were encoded and are probably only readable from ArcGIS.
Is it possible to load this data using the Python API and transform it to another co-ordinate space? Ideally, I would like to transform it to the WSG-84 Space and and do some calculations using some other province/border shaperfile data.
