erdas imagine 2018 generate subset of wms as TIFF file

Hi all,


I would like to take a subset of a WMS as TIFF file. I wonder how can I perform such action using ERDAS Imagine 2018. 

Is there any good documentation about this?


Thank you

I assumed that you have WMS already displayed.


  1. You need to draw AOI. It's available under DRAWING tab > Insert Geometry after pointing in the Contents WMS element,
  2. Under RASTER tab there is available {SUBSET & Chip} functionality you need to choose {Create Subset Image},
  3. On the appeard form you need to set Input raster It's should be your WMS and Output file: it should be your clipped TIFF file,
  4. Then - at the bottom of the same form -  you need to choose {AOI...} function and choose {Viewer} type of selection of AOI source,
  5. Click {OK} and it should be done.
