This is fairly straightforward stuff (in principle!). You can use GDAL's
python bindings to open HDF files (your data looks like ASTER), and then use
matplotlib to plot colour composites. Any further image manipulations are
quite easy as everything is an array. You might need to watch memory usage,
and do image processing by blocks.
