After processing a bunch of Multispectral Images with 5 bands comprising of R,G,B, NIR and RedEdge. The Orthophoto generated has 6 bands and upon further investigation, It shows the additional 6th band as “layer.1”, could anyone help me out with what exactly is this band and what is the purpose of this band ?
That band may well be the transparency band. Have you inspected the bands in something like QGIS?
In QGIS it shows just 3 bands but when I check the image shape using Rasterio it shows that there are 6 bands upon further investigation, I checked this with field image R and R studio again with the same results. I am attaching the screenshots for reference.
Are you able to post the image for further investigation?
