I've read the gdalwarp page and the wikipage to which it links and am still
unsure of how to apply gdalwarp.

The directory with the raw bare earth files contains dblbnd.adf,
metadata.xml, sta.adf, w001001x.adf, hdr.adf, prj.adf, w001001.adf. Which
file should be passed to gdalwarp?

I assume the -wo (warp option) is what I want and I'll specify lanczos.

Presuming the output of gdalwarp is to be re-directed to a file, what format
extension should be used? The input, I believe, is in ArcGrid format and if
gdalwarp is passsed a single file name in that directory what is the output

Thanks in advance,
