I aim to make the fusion of Landsat and Modis using STARFM at USDA StarFM

I tried to conduct this process in R, in which we call the software using this code:

system2(command="./StarFM.exe",args="StarFM_config.txt", wait=TRUE)

However, this cannot run to produce the final results.

I also tried to run the software from Command Prompt as shown below:

cd .\StarFM\source


And got this result:

enter image description here

Can you help me to check, and run this software in R, especially to process Remote sensing data?

STARFM was designed for use in Linux only. For window users, the solution is SARbian (https://eo-college.org/sarbian/). The OS was adjusted with some RS-GIS Softwares already. We even can install it on USB for "sandwich" running.

  • Not quite sure about this. That looks like a full blown OS based on Debian. Whereas the link OP has is for an .exe file, which is usually used with Windows. Apr 29, 2020 at 15:32
  • I do not really understand much about OS, especially Debian. But, I know that SARbian is based on Debian. Moreover, I did run STARFM on SARbian. And it is successful. Apr 30, 2020 at 4:26
  • Is there any other STARFM implented for Win 10? Running it in Linux is my last choice, because it takes some time to install and master Linux OS. Jan 16, 2021 at 8:52
