How to extract metadata of landsat-8 multi spectral image.(RGB Formation). I have processed the image, taken out RGB Bands, cropped it and now want the metadata of the combined stack/brick. Using get_values function i got the values of each band, but unfortunately, the latitudes & Longitudes were missing.

Moreover, once we have a RGB formation, isn't that a metadata or pixel value too will be merged to create one single value against a particular latitude and longitude.

  • What specific metadata would you like? Would gdalinfo suit your needs? – Aaron Mar 29 '17 at 17:20
  • coordinates() or as.data.frame(xy = TRUE) will give you centre coordinate values, but it's unusual to want these directly as they are implicit in the extent() and res()olution. Print the thing out to see a summary. – mdsumner Mar 29 '17 at 19:49
  • I intend to perform the land use classification using unsupervised techniques. Now to perform the above, shouldn't i be using the metadata of the images. – G.D. Mar 30 '17 at 13:57
