Import DESIS L1C product

Prepare a spectral raster layer from the given product. Wavelength and FWHM information is set and data is scaled according to data gain/offset values. Note that the DESIS L1C spectral data file is band interleaved by pixel and compressed, which is very disadvantageous for visualization in QGIS / EnMAP-Box. For faster exploration concider saving the resulting VRT raster layer as GTiff format via the “Translate raster layer” algorithm.


  1. Open the algorithm from the processing toolbox.

  2. Select the metadata file, then click run.

  3. The output raster can be found under Rasters in the Data Source Panel


Metadata file [file]

The metadata XML file associated with the product. Instead of executing this algorithm, you may drag&drop the metadata XML file directly from your system file browser a) onto the EnMAP-Box map view area, or b) onto the Sensor Product Import panel.


Output raster layer [rasterDestination]

Raster file destination.
