GeoTiff Data Component


Also known as GeoTiff, bmi-geotiff
Model type Tool
Model part of larger framework
Note on status model
Date note status model
Incorporated models or components:
Spatial dimensions 2D, 3D
Spatial extent Global, Continental, Regional-Scale, Landscape-Scale, Watershed-Scale, Reach-Scale, Patch-Scale, Grain-Scale
Model domain Terrestrial, Hydrology, Coastal, Marine, Geodynamic, Climate, Ecosystems, Carbonates and Biogenics, Cryosphere, Human dimensions, Planetary landforms
One-line model description A CSDMS data component for accessing data and metadata from a GeoTIFF file, through either a local filepath or a remote URL..
Extended model description The GeoTiff data component, pymt_geotiff, is a Python Modeling Toolkit (pymt) library for accessing data (and metadata) from a GeoTIFF file, through either a local filepath or a remote URL.

The pymt_geotiff component provides BMI-mediated access to GeoTIFF data as a service, allowing them to be coupled in pymt with other data or model components that expose a BMI.
