Preparing a pyramid for the GeoServer with GDAL retile utility
Ciao a tutti,
since we have been asked many times how we configure pyramids for serving them with the GeoServer 2.0 I decided to extract a few slides from our training materials that deals with this topic.
The slides below are released under the Creative Commons terms.
A few annotations:
- use fwtools prebuilt binaries for the GDAL utilities
- make sure your data has proper CRS with an EPSG Code as well as proper georefering by inspecting it prior to preprocessing using the gdalinfo utility
- this tutorial target GeoServer 2.0 and onward
