I want to use i.landsat8.swlst add-on in GRASS GIS to calculate LST from Landsat8 data for my study area.

In the following command:

i.landsat8.swlst mtl=MTL prefix=B landcover=FROM_GLC -n

​Which Basename i am going to provide as prefix for landsat8 data?

  • Say, the the name of of the Landsat8 bands i imported in GRASS GIS is as LC81470372015290LGN00_B2, and i am supported to use prefix=the prefix of the band names imported in GRASS GIS data base. I don't know what is the basename in above imported band.
