I want to convert the VICAR data found at this ASU link to TIFF that I can use in ArcGIS Pro.

How am I able to do this?

  • It looks like the VICAR link is a dead link. VICAR is a valid GDAL raster format gdal.org/drivers/raster/vicar.html, if ArcGIS Pro doesn't support this data natively you can use GDAL_Translate (or QGIS raster translate) to export to a GeoTIFF. Commented Aug 24, 2023 at 2:54

  • thank you :) is there a way that i can reproject this so that it goes from -180 to 180? right now it's 0 to 360 so i can't georeference it correctly.

  • I would try first to fetch the image directly from the WMS service by editing the BBOX parameter http://ms-mars.mars.asu.edu/ti16?SERVICE=WMS&REQUEST=GetMap&FORMAT=image/vicar&WIDTH=2880&HEIGHT=1440&SRS=JMARS:4&BBOX=-180,-90,180,90&STYLES=&VERSION=1.1.1&LAYERS=TES_Thermal_Inertia_numeric. Please test if it works.
