Sentinel-2 USGS Data Hotfix
Release Date: Friday, May 26, 2017
The Sentinel-2 mission consists of two satellites developed to support vegetation, land cover, and environmental monitoring. In late 2016 the formatting of the data provided by ESA was altered in response to concerns regarding path lengths. Subsequently USGS also altered their formatting for data delivered via EarthExplorer and GloVis.
This hotfix provides updated Sentinel-2 SAFE raster format support to read all currently known variants of Sentinel-2 Level 1C imagery delivered by ESA and USGS.
If you install this Hotfix you do not need to also install the earlier v777 Hotfix for ESA Sentinel-2 data. However, if you already have that Hotfix installed, this Hotfix will replace it.
ERDAS IMAGINE 2016 v16.1 must already be installed and configured.
The provided Zip file contains the following updated libraries:
It is highly recommended that the existing files in your ERDAS IMAGINE 2016 v16.1 install be backed up first, such as by renaming them.
Once the files are backed up, unzip the new files into the IMAGINE_HOME path, restart ERDAS IMAGINE and then run File / Configuration / Reconfigure RasterFormats. Restart ERDAS IMAGINE.
To uninstall the hotfix, copy the backup files over the new files. Run File / Configuration / Reconfigure RasterFormats. Restart ERDAS IMAGINE.
