BIL is a format for of Remote Sensing Image Data
Multi-band image data are represented by a combination of spatial position (pixel number and line number) and band.
The data format for multi-band images is classified into the following three types
- BSQ format (band sequential) image data (pixel number and line number) of each band are separately arranged.
- BIL format (band interleaved by line) line data are arranged in the order of band number and repeated with respect to line number.
- BIP format (band interleaved by pixel) A set of multi-band data with respect to each pixel arranged spatially by pixel number and line number.
It is not my intention to fully describe the BIL Format.
