Hi there,
I'm an archaeologist trying to integrate Landsat ETM+ imagery to a regional survey in the Bolivian Amazon Basin. I've downloaded a file from the Global Land Cover Facility (http://glcf.umiacs.umd.edu)
that came in L1G format. So far I have followed the directions given at this web page "http://glcf.umiacs.umd.edu/library/guide/fileformat.shtml", and "http://glcf.umiacs.umd.edu//library/pdf/fileguide_l1g_arcgis.pdf" but I'm having problems with step 2, creating a World File.
According to the first link I should be able to find all the information needed in the metadata file, but there is SO MUCH information there that I don't know what should I copy to the hdr file and what should the the correct name of the hdr file. Without it I try to import the data, the files load but Im not able to see anything.
I am attaching the metadata file to this post. Could anyone give me hand making the world file? Maybe I'm doing something wrong? can anyone post a better tutorial on how to use Landsat ETM+ files in ArcMap 9.3?
Thanks a lot
