comment Remove Holes Existing Within a Single Polygon for a specific area in Qgis
I should mention that I use qgis 2.4 and it does not work here since it has been written for another version (not soecified in the page).

comment Calculate actual Landsat image corner coordinates to derive azimuth (heading)
I can derive the center of my image between its corners, but then how would I draw a line in it (in which direction?). I think using one of the side could anyway be a good proxy, but the best would be doing what you said, but it's tricky I suppose.

comment Calculate actual Landsat image corner coordinates to derive azimuth (heading)
According to the first link you posted, I got that the satellite passes above a specific location, always at the same hour ("same local mean solar time"), but the inclination of the satellite with respect to the polar orbit (saying, with respect a meridian), should be different as the satellite follows a "near-polar orbit". I am dealing with shadow casting on Earth, thus the satellite azimuth is very important to me. Finally, the S-shape is preserved, but should be slightly different than that of an exact polar orbit.

Hey, I just found out I could really benefit from this code in my task. One thing, I have no idea which is the programming language it is written, could you please tell me so that I can use it? Is it java, javascript, c? thanks in advance!

comment Estimating Landsat 7 azimuth (heading)
It seems John Parr Snyder created a new projection known as "Space Oblique Mercator" (SOM) to "continually map the Earth’s surface using Landsat data" (landsat.gsfc.nasa.gov/?p=3309), and that it is possible to project data through PROJ.4 (thanks to gis.stackexchange.com/questions/42432/…). I will try to come up with a result and will up date this page.
