Coordinates of Landsat8 raster data

by gcaria » Tue Feb 08, 2022 11:34 am America/New_York


I am using Landsat8 data, specifically taken from `usgs-landsat/collection02/level-2/standard/oli-tirs`, and while I can read the data correctly, I am wondering to what point of the raster cell its coordinates refer to, e.g. a given corner or the center.

Just to be clearer, reading a file I can see, for example, a raster cell with coordinates x=50, y=10. My doubt is about what point of the raster cell these coordinates refer to, and I know this could differ while looking at different data.

Could anyone please help?

Landsat is not a NASA Earthdata product, so we can't answer the question. However, the Landsat folks at the USGS EROS data Center will be able to help. Here is there contact email:
