Re: Change the Nodata value in a file.

I'm sorry this isn't more obviously documented. You can change the nodata value of an existing dataset by opening it in r+ mode and setting the attribute.
with rasterio.open("example.tif", "r+") as dataset:
dataset.nodata = 255
Same goes for the crs and transform attributes. Hope this helps!

Using RasterIO, what is the correct way to change (or assign if it isn't already set) the no data value for a single or multi band TIF file?
For example using the test rgb.byte.tif file, how do I change the nodata value from 0 to 255? So far I have tried:
with rasterio.open('RGB.byte.tif') as src:
Currently this only changes tif header/metadata information and not the actual data.
bands = src.read(masked=True)
bands.fill_value = 255
kwargs = src.meta.copy()
with rasterio.open('copy.RGB.byte.tif', 'w', **kwargs) as dst:
Options I've seen to accomplish this include
# 1. masked arrays
Or should I be using rasterIO's read_mask(), write_mask() or dataset_mask()?
bands = np.ma.masked_values(src.read(masked=True), 255)
# 2. loop through bands and change value
for i in range(1, src.count + 1):
band = src.read(i)
band = np.where(band==0,255,band)
# 3. numpy indexing
bands = src.read()
bands==0] = 255
What is the preferred method? I haven't been able to find this in any of the user documentation.
