Distribution disk files

A GF7 data set is organized in a specific folder structure on disk. GDB uses this folder structure and the file names to identify the data product type.

Warning: Data sets for this sensor are organized in a specific folder structure on disk. GDB uses this structure and the file names to identify the data product type. Do not alter the folder structure or any file names prior to data ingestion to ensure the image data and auxiliary information are imported correctly.
You can open a GF7 data set by selecting one of the following files according to the distributor:
  • CRESDA: GF7_*-BWDPAN.xml, GF7_*-FWDPAN.xml, GF7_*-BWDMUX.xml for a single GF7 component.
  • CRESDA: GF7_*.xml for a swath component.
  • LASAC: GF701_*.xml for a single GF7 component.
