The problem is whether the scale factor has to be multiplied (as written in the HDF5 doc and done by QGIS) or divided (as assumed by the files producer).

#2 Updated by Andre Joost over 8 years ago

Maybe related to the patch in #8417

Strangely, a scale_factor value in the metadata is not used, if the file has been converted from netcdf to geotiff (and not by gdalwarp during the reprojection).

#3 Updated by Ali Yagci over 8 years ago

QGIS should not worry about the scale factor. It is not QGIS job. Users can do this operation on their own. For example, ArcMap is not involved in scale factor correction.

  • Resolution set to wontfix

This is a "won't fix" from me. The source data has a scale factor set, so we respect that.
