COG

Cloud Optimized GeoTIFF (COG) creation and validation plugin for Rasterio.

Test Coverage Package version Conda Forge Downloads Downloads


Documentation: https://cogeotiff.github.io/rio-cogeo/

Source Code: https://github.com/cogeotiff/rio-cogeo


Cloud Optimized GeoTIFF

This plugin aims to facilitate the creation and validation of Cloud Optimized GeoTIFF (COG or COGEO). While it respects the COG specifications, this plugin also enforces several features:

  • Internal overviews (User can remove overview with option --overview-level 0)
  • Internal tiles (default profiles have 512x512 internal tiles)

Important: in GDAL 3.1 a new COG driver has been added (doc, discussion), starting with rio-cogeo version 2.2, --use-cog-driver option was added to create COG using the COG driver.

Install

$ pip install -U pip
$ pip install rio-cogeo

Or install from source:

$ pip install -U pip
$ pip install git+https://github.com/cogeotiff/rio-cogeo.git

GDAL Version

It is recommended to use GDAL > 2.3.2. Previous versions might not be able to create proper COGs (ref: https://github.com/OSGeo/gdal/issues/754).
