gdal_merge - gdal_merge.py mosaics a set of images
gdal_merge.py [-o out_filename] [-of out_format] [-co NAME=VALUE]*
[-ps pixelsize_x pixelsize_y] [-separate] [-v] [-pct]
[-ul_lr ulx uly lrx lry] [-n nodata_value] [-init value]
[-ot datatype] [-createonly] input_files
This utility will automatically mosaic a set of images. All the images
must be in the same coordinate system and have a matching number of
bands, but they may be overlapping, and at different resolutions.
The name of the output file, which will be created if it does not
already exist (defaults to ’out.tif’).
Output format, defaults to GeoTIFF (GTiff).
Creation option for output file. Multiple options can be specified.
Force the output image bands to have a specific type. Use type
names (ie. Byte, Int16,...)
-ps pixelsize_x pixelsize_y:
Pixel size to be used for the output file. If not specified the
resolution of the first input file will be used.
-ul_lr ulx uly lrx lry:
The extents of the output file. If not specified the aggregate
extents of all input files will be used.
Generate verbose output of mosaicing operations as they are done.
Place each input file into a separate stacked band.
Grab a pseudocolor table from the first input image, and use it for
the output. Merging pseudocolored images this way assumes that all
input files use the same color table.
Ignore pixels from files being merged in with this pixel value.
Pre-initialize the output file with this value. However, it is not
marked as the nodata value in the output file.
The output file is created (and potentially pre-initialized) but no
input image data is copied into it.
NOTE: gdal_merge.py is a Python script, and will only work if GDAL was
built with Python support.
