As pointed at Performing gdal translate to png/jpeg? (by @user30184) gdal info hist gives (STATISTICS_MINIMUM/STATISTICS_MAXIMUN there in the end):

I would like to get this values via python so I did:

from osgeo import gdal
info = gdal.Info('image.bsq', deserialize=True)
print(info) 

And got:

How do I get just min/max from all this? So I can:

print(min) to get 9229.

I managet to implement answer by @user30184 but sometimes it does not work. Below is the output of one of this times:

ds = gdal.Open(img_bsq)
band = ds.GetRasterBand(1)
l = band.GetMinimum()
r = band.GetMaximum()
print(gdal.Info(ds))
print(l)
print(r)

Plain GDAL Python solution:

from osgeo import gdal
gtif = gdal.Open( "sentinel.tif" )
srcband = gtif.GetRasterBand(1)
srcband.ComputeStatistics(0)
print "[ MIN ] = ", srcband.GetMinimum()
print "[ MAX ] = ", srcband.GetMaximum()

Comparison of Python and gdalinfo

Python returns:

[ MIN ] =  187.0
[ MAX ] =  18119.0

Gdalinfo returns

  Metadata:
    STATISTICS_MAXIMUM=18119
    STATISTICS_MEAN=3572.9272485136
    STATISTICS_MINIMUM=187
    STATISTICS_STDDEV=1787.6104593137
  • And why it doen't work sometimes? I managed to elaborate a minimun working example and it works as u mention. But sometimes GetMinimum/GetMaximum seem to return None. – KcFnMi May 24 '18 at 10:25
  • Please provide small test image for reproducing that. – user30184 May 24 '18 at 10:27
  • Image I have is ~120MB. Updated question with output of print(gdal.Info(ds)), strange it do not include min/max, can u guess anything? – KcFnMi May 24 '18 at 10:36
  • 2
    @KcFnMi because you haven't calculated the statistics yet. srcband.ComputeRasterMinMax() or srcband.ComputeBandStats() – user2856 May 24 '18 at 11:01
