This is an end-user framework built around GDAL for huge rasters. It organises national/continental-scale tiled parallel GDAL operations efficiently. It allows structured re-use of optimal GDAL configurations.
- Rbuild & GDAL presentation from FOSS4G2013. Includes notes on storage & performance efficiency in GDAL.
- Git repository.
- Demonstration project.
- A tool that compiles Excel spreadsheet descriptions into efficient gdal_calc raster algebra.
When you create a new page please use the subwiki syntax
UserDocs/ANewWikiPage so it will be properly nested in the TitleIndex and easy to seperate from the developer and trac system pages. If you don't like
UserDocs being prefixed in front, use the bracket syntax of
[UserDocs/EasyToReadName Easy to read name], which will be displayed as Easy to read name
