I currently have two Landsat 5 reflectance value layers that were calculated from the per-processing function in SCP for QGIS. I would like to merge these two images together to create one mosaic layer which can be used for an NDVI calculation. Is this possible? Any time I try to complete this, I still have a white space in the overlapping portion of the images.

The images I am trying to merge: The layers I am trying to merge

The files selected in the merge tool options:

The merge settings:

My incorrect results:

  • Does one of the original layers (probably the one to the NE) contain no data values where the white strip shows up? – lambertj Jun 28 '18 at 15:46
  • Yes, it does contain no data in the white strip – EB2018 Jun 28 '18 at 16:17
  • OK, gotcha. Does nodata=0 in the original and merged datasets? If so, does setting nodata=0 to not display fix the problem? Or are you actually missing data in the merged dataset? – lambertj Jun 28 '18 at 17:25
  • No I am actually missing data in the merged dataset – EB2018 Jun 28 '18 at 18:40
  • Just to clarify, does the original layer have nodata in this same location? – lambertj Jun 28 '18 at 18:47
