I have a 23-band .sav file that I need to load in ENVI. The 23 bands are 23 time points of MODIS NDVI data. I ultimately want to run a classification on this data. I have been using Data Manager to load the .sav file, but have only been able to load three bands at a time (RGB).

How can I load the ENTIRE 23-band file at once?

Use restore procedure in IDL and then save it to ENVI binary file. the code can like this:

restore,'e:\ndvi.sav'  ;this can get variable ndvi,for example

ndvi.dat can then be opened by ENVI.
