gdalinfo - gdalinfo lists information about a raster dataset

The gdalinfo program lists various information about a GDAL supported raster dataset.

Force computation of the actual min/max values for each band in the dataset.

Read and display image statistics. Force computation if no statistics are stored in an

Read and display image statistics. Force computation if no statistics are stored in an
image. However, they may be computed based on overviews or a subset of all tiles.
Useful if you are in a hurry and don't want precise stats.

Report histogram information for all bands.

Suppress ground control points list printing. It may be useful for datasets with huge
amount of GCPs, such as L1B AVHRR or HDF4 MODIS which contain thousands of them.

Suppress metadata printing. Some datasets may contain a lot of metadata strings.

Suppress printing of raster attribute table.

Suppress printing of color table.

Force computation of the checksum for each band in the dataset.

(GDAL >= 1.11) List all metadata domains available for the dataset.

-mdd domain
Report metadata for the specified domain. Starting with GDAL 1.11, 'all' can be used
to report metadata in all domains

(GDAL >= 1.9.0) Only display the first file of the file list.

-sd subdataset
(GDAL >= 1.9.0) If the input dataset contains several subdatasets read and display a
subdataset with specified number (starting from 1). This is an alternative of giving
the full subdataset name.

(GDAL >= 1.9.0) Report a PROJ.4 string corresponding to the file's coordinate system.

The gdalinfo will report all of the following (if known):

· The format driver used to access the file.
· Raster size (in pixels and lines).
· The coordinate system for the file (in OGC WKT).
· The geotransform associated with the file (rotational coefficients are currently not
· Corner coordinates in georeferenced, and if possible lat/long based on the full
geotransform (but not GCPs).
· Ground control points.
· File wide (including subdatasets) metadata.
· Band data types.
· Band color interpretations.
· Band block size.
· Band descriptions.
· Band min/max values (internally known and possibly computed).
· Band checksum (if computation asked).
· Band NODATA value.
· Band overview resolutions available.
· Band unit type (i.e.. 'meters' or 'feet' for elevation bands).
· Band pseudo-color tables.
