Does anyone have an elegant way to read ESRI grid (raster) files into Matlab? I only need to get the floating point data from the w001001.adf file. I do not have access to a GIS software package to convert these files to ASCII.
thank you, Chad

If you have the Mapping Toolbox product, you can use arcgridread:
To see which products are installed on the system you're using, enter "ver" in the MATLAB Command Window.

Starting in R2020a, the readgeoraster function can read Esri Binary Grid .adf files.
