  • hi,
    i used geoserver 2.0 and fwtools
    but does not work !!!!
    some one way help me? thanks

Creating a Pyramid with GDAL reltile for serving with GeoServer

  1. 1. Creating a pyramid for serving via the GeoServer ImagePyramid plugin Ing. Simone Gianneccchini Ing. Daniele Romagnoli
  2. 2. Outline  Concept of pyramid  GDAL retile  How to build a piramid  How to configure it in GeoServer
  3. 3. Raster Data Pyramid  Multi-resolution hierarchy of tiles for a raster dataset  Lower level == higher resolution  Higher Level == reduced resolution  Lower Level == more tiles  Higher Level == less tiles  Can efficiently serve really large dataset at all resolution levels • Use as few files as possible
  4. 4. Raster Data Pyramid  Creating a pyramid with gdal_retile  [-v] [-co NAME=VALUE]* [-of out_format] [-ps pixelWidth pixelHeight] [-ot {Byte/Int16/UInt16/UInt32/Int32/Float32/Float64/ CInt16/CInt32/CFloat32/CFloat64}] [ -tileIndex tileIndexName [-tileIndexField fieldName]] [ -csv fileName [-csvDelim delimiter]] [-s_srs srs_def] [-pyramidOnly] -levels numberoflevels [-r {near/bilinear/cubic/cubicspline}] -targetDir TileDirectory input_files  Serve with ImagePyramid GeoServer extension Not part of standard GeoServer Download from GeoServer site Install as explained here Check that the Raster Data Source list the ImagePyramid format
  5. 5. Raster Data Pyramid  Prepare the list of tiles to be retiled ls *.tif > tiles.txt mkdir tiles  Create the pyramid with GDAL retile (grab a coffee!) gdal_retile -levels 3 -ps 2048 2048 -co "TILED=YES" -co "BLOCKXSIZE=256" -co "TILED=YES" -co "BLOCKXSIZE=256" -co "BLOCKYSIZE=256" -targetDir tiles --optfile tiles.txt -s_srs EPSG:3003 -targetDir tiles --optfile tiles.txt  Move the full resolution raster tiles to a folder called “0” cd tiles gdal_retile -levels 3 -ps 2048 2048 -co "TILED=YES" -co "BLOCKXSIZE=256" mkdir 0 -co "BLOCKYSIZE=256" -targetDir tiles --optfile tiles.txt mv *.tif 0  Create a mosaic for each level (its own directory) create an ImageMosaic store in GeoServer by pointing the store to the level directory (automagic index creation) remove the store when done  Rename each mosaic's auxiliary file to match the name of the pyramid  0.prj,, 0.shp, 0.shx, 0.dbf
  6. 6. Raster Data Pyramid  Define the file: Place it at the root of the pyramid directory hierarchy Define the Envelope2D as per the 0 level properties file Set the Levels resolution as defined in each property file starting from the base level (0) to the last ResX0,ResY0 ResX1,ResY1 …. ResXN-1,ResY1N-1 LevelDirs contains the names for the reduced resolution directories LevelsNum indicates the number of reduced resolutions levels Name=pyramid Levels=1.0,1.0 2.0,2.0 4.0,4.0 LevelsDirs=0 1 2 LevelsNum=3 Envelope2D=1653000.0,4686200.0 1660200.0,4695240.0 Create a file pyramid.prj at the pyramid root
  7. 7. Raster Data Pyramid  Add a new coverage using ImagePyramid plugin Available as a GeoServer's CoverageStore extension Download JAR from Extension and add to WEB-INF lib  Specify the location as URL for the store
  8. 8. Raster Data Pyramid  Overview of the Pyramid
