SYNOPSIS

my_isis2tif [--format <STRIP|TILE>] [--band <band list>] [--sfrom <subcube specifier<gt>] [--orange <orange specifier>] [--version] [--help] [--man] <.cub files to turn into TIFF files>


DESCRIPTION

This program requires a list of <.cub files to turn into TIFF files>. The output TIFF files are named identically to the input ISIS .cub files with the .cub replaced with .tif.

This program runs the ISIS program isis2tif in a more sane way with (what I think) are handier command line arguments.


OPTIONS

--format <STRIP|TILE>
This argument passes its value on to the ISIS isis2tif FORMAT parameter.

--band <band list>
This argument passes its value on to the ISIS isis2tif BAND parameter. If there are no parentheses around the <band list>, they will be added when given to the ISIS isis2tif BAND parameter. Alternately, if there are less than three comma-separated values (and no parens), the remaining values will be given zeros. So if you just said -b 1, that would translate to this program giving BAND=(1,0,0).

--sfrom <subcube specifier<gt>
This argument passes its value on to the ISIS isis2tif SFROM parameter.

--orange <orange specifier>
This argument passes its value on to the ISIS isis2tif ORANGE parameter, unless there is a '%' symbol in the specifier. In this case, this program runs the ISIS hstret program to translate your percentage values into DN values for the ISIS isis2tif ORANGE parameter. For example this option could use percentages, '-o 0.5%:99.5%', traditional pixel values, '-o 0.123:0.456', or a combination, '-o 0.5%:0.456'.

If you want a TIFF image that is the same as what you see when you run ISIS qview with the default viewing range, then you should use '-o 0.5%:99.5%'.
