These tools should be released with FME 2013 and already available in <A href=http://www.safe.com/support/support-resources/fme-downloads/beta/>future beta versions of FME</A> this fall. A great news for the PostGIS community!<BR><BR>

You can now read irregular arrangements of raster and translate them into any format supported by GDAL. We are still looking for sponsors to implement the writer part of the driver.<BR><BR>
