Pktools is a collection of programs to perform operations, mostly on
raster geolocated  images. It  heavily relies  on the  Geospatial Data
Abstraction Library (GDAL) and OGR.  The programs are similar to the
GDAL tools (gdalinfo, gdal_translate,  gdal_merge, ...) and some of the
functionalities provided in pktools already exist in the GDAL tools.
All utilities in pktools use command line options and have a built
in help. They include more than thirty binaries to edit, change, crop,
classify, compare, dump, fill, enhance images and many other
common operations useful in the remote sensing field of image
