To deal with multiple rasters loaded to a table in a database (can be PostGIS or Oracle, example is Oracle), you can use a TILEINDEX in MapServer.
Database TILEINDEXes are a little odd in MapServer, they require 2 separate layers, a TILEINDEX layer and a RASTER layer that refers to the TILEINDEX layer.
In Oracle, you'll want to create the TILEINDEX as a view to the GEORASTER table of interest.
create or replace view my_raster_tindex as select some_attribute, 'geor: user/pass@tns, raster_table_DATA,'||r.raster.rasterid location, R.RASTER.spatialextent shape from rasters_table r;
This view will then be used for the TILEINDEX layer
LAYER name raster_tindex TYPE polygon PROJECTION "init=epsg:xxxx" END CONNECTIONTYPE ORACLESPATIAL CONNECTION user/pass@tns' DATA "shape from my_raster_tindex using srid xxxx" END
Then you add a second layer that is the actual RASTER layer
LAYER name db_raster_layer TYPE RASTER PROJECTION "init=epsg:xxxx" END TILEINDEX "raster_tindex" #THIS NAME MUST MATCH THE TILEINDEX LAYER NAME TILEITEM "location" #not actually needed if column is named location STATUS OFF OFFSITE 0 0 0 END
One last piece that is needed is to set the SHAPEPATH to null so that the paths to the raster files are treated as database connections and not files.
