This is my first post, I hope I don't screw it up. We have about 400 MODIS HDF4 files we are looking to batch process in the ArcGIS 10 or Python environment. The tools we are looking to use are Extract Subdataset (HDF4 files have subdatasets and we are only interested in one of them, which its index number is 1), ProjectRaster(to UTM 11 NAD 83), convert HDF4 files to TIFF (although I believe this can be done when executing the Extract Subdataset tool as it lets you choose an output file format), Int (we need the raster file to have an attribute table with pixel values). I've tried performing these tasks in modelbuilder in batch mode but i've had no success in properly setting it up.
We are interested in both the ModelBuilder and Python approach.
It would be great if someone can post some batch processing code that would apply to these tools.
