       gdaltindexBuilds a shapefile as a raster tileindex.


       gdaltindex [-f format] [-tileindex field_name] [-write_absolute_path]
                  [-skip_different_projection] [-t_srs target_srs]
                  [-src_srs_name field_name] [-src_srs_format [AUTO|WKT|EPSG|PROJ]

       This program builds a shapefile with a record for each input raster file, an attribute
       containing the filename, and a polygon geometry outlining the raster. This output is
       suitable for use with MapServer as a raster tileindex.

       -f format:
           (GDAL >= 1.11)

       The OGR format of the output tile index file. Starting with GDAL 2.3, if not specified,
       the format is guessed from the extension (previously was ESRI Shapefile).

       -tileindex field_name:

       The output field name to hold the file path/location to the indexed rasters. The default
       tile index field name is location.


       The absolute path to the raster files is stored in the tile index file. By default the
       raster filenames will be put in the file exactly as they are specified on the command


       Only files with same projection as files already inserted in the tileindex will be
       inserted (unless -t_srs is specified). Default does not check projection and accepts all

       -t_srs target_srs:

       Geometries of input files will be transformed to the desired target coordinate reference
       system. Using this option generates files that are not compatible with MapServer < 6.4.
       Default creates simple rectangular polygons in the same coordinate reference system as the
       input rasters.

       -src_srs_name field_name:
           (GDAL >= 1.11)

       The name of the field to store the SRS of each tile. This field name can be used as the
       value of the TILESRS keyword in MapServer >= 6.4.

       -src_srs_format type:
           (GDAL >= 1.11)

       The format in which the SRS of each tile must be written. Types can be AUTO, WKT, EPSG,

       -lyr_name name:

       Layer name to create/append to in the output tile index file.


       The name of the output file to create/append to. The default shapefile will be created if
       it doesn't already exist, otherwise it will append to the existing file.


       The input GDAL raster files, can be multiple files separated by spaces. Wildcards my also
       be used. Stores the file locations in the same style as specified here, unless
       -write_absolute_path option is also used.


       Produce a shapefile (doq_index.shp) with a record for every image that the utility found
       in the doq folder. Each record holds information that points to the location of the image
       and also a bounding rectangle shape showing the bounds of the image:

       gdaltindex doq_index.shp doq/*.tif

       The -t_srs option can also be used to transform all input rasters into the same output

       gdaltindex -t_srs EPSG:4326 -src_srs_name src_srs tile_index_mixed_srs.shp *.tif
