Handling and Manipulating Remote Sensing Data.

Herein, we provide a broad variety of functions which are useful for handling, manipulating, and visualizing satellite-based remote sensing data. These operations range from mere data import and layer handling (eg subsetting), over Raster* typical data wrangling (eg crop, extend), to more sophisticated (pre-)processing tasks typically applied to satellite imagery (eg atmospheric and topographic correction). This functionality is complemented by a full access to the satellite layers' metadata at any stage and the documentation of performed actions in a separate log file. Currently available sensors include Landsat 4-5 (TM), 7 (ETM+), and 8 (OLI/TIRS Combined), and additional compatibility is ensured for the Landsat Global Land Survey data set. Moreover, support for Terra and Aqua-MODIS as well as PROBA-V is expected to arrive shortly.
