I am trying to calcualate the statistics of a TIFF. The script should ignore the NoData value, but doesn't. What causes this?
import gdal from gdalconst import * # register all of the drivers gdal.AllRegister() # open the image ds = gdal.Open('test_slope.tif', GA_ReadOnly) # get raster band 1 band = ds.GetRasterBand(1) # set NoData value band.SetNoDataValue(-3.4028230607371e+38) # Calculate and print Statistics stats = band.GetStatistics(0,1) print stats
The results look like this
>>> [-3.4028230607371e+38, 126.5991897583, -4.6432918375055e+37, 1.1680875238428e+38] >>>
