[GRASS-user] AVIRIS data in GRASS

I don't think you can use r.in.bin because there is no option to  
specify the number of bands and how those bands are interleaved. In  
the past I've used Multispec and Matlab to read the data but you might  
be able to manipulate GDAL to read it. If you can create a header file  
for a generic binary file that will provide GDAL with the number of  
rows, columns, byte order, #channels, # of bytes/sample and the  
interleave method then you can tell GDAL how to read it. Unfortunately  
I can't hit the GDAL website right now so I can't tell if any of the  
generic binary formats allow for all those definitions.



PS. Also note that none of the tiles provided in the "free" area have  
been geometrically rectified and some have severe distortions due to  
aircraft dynamics.
