Problem getting Terra GEO file

by ana_dogliotti » Sun Jan 22, 2017 10:52 am America/New_York

Hello,

I'm trying to process a Terra image I recently downloaded from the OC web (extracted) and I can't get the GEO file. I tried using -refreshDB, but still get the processing failure. Any idea?
Thanks!

Ana

Ana,

When the geolocation process fails it leaves behind three log files that are often useful in diagnosing the failure.
These files start with the following prefixes:
LogUser
LogReport
LogStatus

Look at these files and if you can't interpret the cryptic messages contained, attach the files to a post and we'll
see if someone here can :grin:

Hi Sean,
Forget my problem... I kept checking things and I realized I had not installed modist data...
Working now...
Sorry about that...

Ana
