I am trying to convert MODIS Leaf Area Index (LAI) data from .hdf to GeoTiff from 2001.
I can successfully convert it using R for the more recent datasets using the following code:
library(gdalUtils) sds <- get_subdatasets("GLASS01B01.V03.A2014001.2016025.hdf") gdal_translate(sds, dst_dataset = "GLASS01B01.V03.A2014001.2016025.tif")
Datasets from 2014 are available here: ftp://ftp.glcf.umd.edu/glcf/GLASS/LAI/MODIS/0.05D/2014/. I am then displaying the output GeoTIFF files in ArcGIS.
However, the result is incorrect for the data from 2001, available here: ftp://ftp.glcf.umd.edu/glcf/GLASS/LAI/MODIS/0.05D/2001/
The spatial extent information seems to be incorrect. The spatial extent is specified within the files as Top: 0.025, Left: -0.05, Right: 0.05, Bottom: -0.025
For datasets from 2014, projected correctly the spatial extent is specified as Top: 90, Left: -180, Right: 180, Bottom: -90.
I have also tried the HEGTool.
Can I correct for this, either in R or in ArcGIS? Maybe some addition to the code will allow me to specify the extent?
