I'm trying to open an MODIS file (hdf format) with gdal in a python script under windows OS. I use the HDF4 driver, as read at http://www.gdal.org/frmt_hdf4.html.
But when I run it I got this error message:
ERROR 4: `MOD10A1.A2000064.h12v04.005.2007164045648.hdf' not recognised as a supported file format.
I have tried with the gdal.ALLRegister() statement with the same result. My goal is to obtain the properties of the image using GeoTransform, RasterXSize, etc. and reproject it afterward. If you could provide me with any help it would be much appreciated.
ps. I know I can use the Modis Reprojection Tool (MRT) but I need it to be included in my script as it will iterate over a folder containing a lot of images.
