#5624 closed enhancement (wontfix)

gdal2tiles: assess and merge features from maptiler version.

Reported by: hamish Owned by: warmerdam
Priority: normal Milestone: closed_because_of_github_migration
Component: Utilities Version: svn-trunk
Severity: normal Keywords: gdal2tiles



the maptiler 1.0.beta2 .deb release has a slightly newer version of than either the maptiler svn (on googlecode) or in the gdal/swig/python/scripts/ of that time.

Attached is a diff between r15748 of gdal's copy of the script and the version which shipped with maptiler.

One of the newer features (--srsnodata) was later merged in r16719, perhaps that later commit included a number of other parts of this patch as well? here's the diff between those two revisions:

New stuff the attached patch:

new profiles: 'gearth' and 'garmin'

new options:

  • --tile-format: Image format of generated tiles - default 'png'
  • --init-dest: Colour used to initialize output, only for 'jpeg' tile format
  • --tilesize: Size of the tiles - default 256
  • -d, --kml-depth: How many levels to store before linking, default 1
  • --kmz: Compress KML files into KMZ format, default for 'gearth' profile
  • --no-kmz: Do not compress KML files into KMZ format, default for 'mercator', 'geodetic' and 'raster' profiles

IMO --tile-format seems to be the most important of these. (see also #2052)

As you seem to have interest for gdal2tiles, would you be interested in taking 'ownership' on gdal2tiles as we currently lack a maintener for it ? A much needed feature would be adding a few regression tests for gdal2tiles that we currently lack. Would you be willing to do so ? Such tests could be added in
