Convert remote sensing images to time series
To perform time series and regression analysis, satellite imagery first needs to be transformed into a suitable format. I highlight next four different methods to convert satellite observation (typically in .HDF or .NetCDF format) to .csv or .Rda files.
ENVI-IDL: Proprietary remote-sensing software that provides hyperspectral image analysis, image enhancement and feature extraction. Usually served with IDL, a programming software used for data analysis, visualization and cross-platform application development. [link]
MODIStsp: R package devoted to automatizing the creation of time series of raster images derived from MODIS Land Products data. [link]
