HDFclean V2 is a programme for reprocessing images stored in the HDF file format (Hierarchical Data Format). Two types of processing can be selected: Fill Missing Pixels and Remove Stripes.

The intended use is to tidy up images of the Earth captured by the CHRIS hyper-spectral imager. This instrument was built by the former Sira Space Group (now part of Surrey Satellite Technology Ltd (SSTL) as part of the ESA PROBA satellite. It has been operational since October 2001, so there is a sizable library of images.

The programme may work with HDF images from other sources, but this cannot be guaranteed (see HDFclean Help document).
