I have a number of TAB and TIF files. They form a single coverage. What I want to do is to convert all of them into a single GeoTIFF file, using GDAL tools, but I do not know how. I looked through dozens of threads, tutorials and etc., and it seems like GDAL supports TAB and TIF files, though I could not find any real example.
You could make a virtual mosaic of all .tab and .tif files using
gdalbuildvrt and then convert the resulting VRT file to GeoTIFF with
gdalbuildvrt -input_file_list my_list.txt mosaic.vrt gdal_translate mosaic.vrt mosaic.tif
my_list.txt is the input file list.
