Hi all,

I need to resample raster files on the command line.

First I thought that resampling would be an option of gdal_translate, but
it seems like it isn't implemented and there is a patch pending:
http://trac.osgeo.org/gdal/ticket/1724 - but this patch is against an old

gdal_warp allows to specify the resampling method and resolution change
when reprojecting, but I don't want to reproject my data, I just want
resampling. Is gdal_warp the tool to use for resampling by specifying the
same input and output projection?
