Kompsat-3 in Erdas Imagine 2018

New to the forum, great to meet you all. 


So I have an issue with adding Kompsat-3 data to Imagine 2018. The only way to access Kompsat-3 data is through an aux.xml file. Imagine 2018, however, does not recognize this as a valid raster format and therefore I cannot access the Control Points functionality to orthorectify the image. Is there a workaround to my problem? 

Thanks in advance!

Re: Kompsat-3 in Erdas Imagine 2018

Hello Harijsi,


Are there TIFF files associated with the *_Aux.xml file for your KOMPSAT-3 data? You can open these TIFF files in ERDAS IMAGINE. If your KOMPSAT-3 data was delivered with a separate TIFF file for each band, you can layer stack the TIFF files together to create a multilayer composite image.


Kind regards,

Thanks for the reply, Stephen


I have stacked K3 imagery before, but I thought that maybe there was a way for Imagine to read the aux.xml file - to minimize the processing time. Anyhow, the stacking method works fine, so thanks for the confirmation and the fast reply - I really appreciate it.
