Example

To run this example in command-line, use the following:

otbcli_ConvertSensorToGeoPoint -in QB_TOULOUSE_MUL_Extract_500_500.tif -input.idx 200 -input.idy 200

To run this example from Python, use the following code snippet:

#!/usr/bin/python

# Import the otb applications package
import otbApplication

# The following line creates an instance of the ConvertSensorToGeoPoint application
ConvertSensorToGeoPoint = otbApplication.Registry.CreateApplication("ConvertSensorToGeoPoint")

# The following lines set all the application parameters:
ConvertSensorToGeoPoint.SetParameterString("in", "QB_TOULOUSE_MUL_Extract_500_500.tif")

ConvertSensorToGeoPoint.SetParameterFloat("input.idx", 200)

ConvertSensorToGeoPoint.SetParameterFloat("input.idy", 200)

# The following line execute the application
ConvertSensorToGeoPoint.ExecuteAndWriteOutput()
