I want to do vegetation, water, and soil analysis to an area using satellite imagery. My area of interest is East Java, Indonesia. Here's the map of East Java, Indonesia.
I got 6 scenes of LANDSAT 8 OLI/TIRS that cover the AOI. I want to combine all the scenes of all bands (I mosaic Band 1 from 6 scenes, and so on) will shorter my time for analysis because I can analysis all the scenes at once. I build a ModelBuilder for combining the six scenes, band by band. Here's my ModelBuilder.
The tools I use in the model is Copy Raster to remove the 'black area' (if you know what is it called, please tell) in the georeferenced scene so it doesn't overlap when I combine all the scenes. I set the pixel type 16-bit unsigned, Ignore Value Data 0, and No Data Value 0.
Then I use Mosaic To New Raster tool to combine all the scenes. I use itu for combining scene in band 1, band 2, band 3, and so on. The model works for band 1 until band 11. But when I use the Model Builder for quality assessment band (BQA), it didn't work.
This is mosaic of six scenes in band number 3 (also my expectation for BQA too), using the ModelBuilder.
This is the mosaic of the scenes in BQA. The black area isn't removed even when I did the Copy Raster without the ModelBuilder.
Is it possible to use Copy Raster tool to BQA to remove the 'black area' and then combining all the scenes?
I only find in the internet that Mosaic To New Raster Tool is used for combining composite bands, I don't know if it's okay to combine single band from all scenes, combine to make composite bands, then use it for analysis. I thought is it okay until I find this problem.
