I'm looking for a tool or a workflow to compute satellite image footprints, for a large number of images across directories, and produce a shapefile. Ideal work flow would be:
- fire up tool
- point to a directory and provide file mask
- the tool browses directory and sub-directories and compute footprints
- the tool produces a shapefile with a polygon for each footprint and pre-selected attributes
It would preferably be Esri or ERDAS based, but not necessarily.
gdaltindexbut unfortunately this tool creates bounding box instead of footprint. According to this definitions: gis.stackexchange.com/a/269689/35561
