Create a polygon index shapefile from raster extent boundaries with raster properties and file locations in the attribute table.
Read all image files from one folder and, optionally, its subfolders. Option to project polygons from different spatial references to WGS84 to index rasters with various projections together in one shapefile. Raster attributes in shapefile include file name, file path, format, compression type, pyramid layers present, number of bands, pixel type, spatial reference, units, pixel size, number of columns and rows, and minimum and maximum X and Y coordinates. Progress bars indicate how many files and folders have been processed. Text box shows current folder and file and any error messages. Errors reported in log file help identify bad or corrupt image files or images without projections defined.
-When reading subfolders, program ignores hidden and system folders and each subfolder path is listed in the status window
