I'm processing lots of USGS NAIP imagery which overlaps. if I load multiple files into a QGIS project I can clearly see the edges of each tile being that some tiles have a darker or lighter contrast than neighboring tiles.

by using GlobalMapper I'm able to put a fade around all of the edges of the tiles to basically fade them together. but I'm getting away from that method to create a full script to handle my proccess much easier. is there a way to "fade" or "blend" the edges together using gdal or maybe do some type of histogram correction?

  • It sounds like you are essentially trying to do mosaicing with alpha channel blending. The process for this, and a workaround for a known bug, has been asked and answered before. – Kersten Jul 8 '15 at 7:14
  • Thank I actually figured out a way to do it using gdalwarp clip and cblend since all of the tiles overlap by about 800 pixels. – Steven Lutz Jul 9 '15 at 5:10
  • Can you post your solution and accept it so the rest of us can benefit? – Ahmed Fasih Feb 2 '18 at 18:22
  • My solution didn't work. – Steven Lutz Mar 13 '18 at 5:33
