Rasterlite

gravitystorm edited this page Aug 21, 2012 · 8 revisions

This plugin supports reading georaster files embedded into sqlite databases using RasterLite of the excellent Spatialite project.

The use of rasterlite allows to use jpeg / wavelets compressed rasters in sqlite files (even 4GB databases !) quite fast than plain geotiff, thanks to the use of the R-Tree and Pyramid features in sqlite.

For other plugins see: PluginArchitecture

Plugin datasource initialization example code can be found on PluginArchitecture.

A Raster datasource may be created as follows:

    {
        parameters p;
        p["type"]="rasterlite";
        p["file"]="/path/to/my/rasterlite/database.sqlite";
        p["table"]=my_raster;
    
        set_datasource(datasource_cache::instance()->create(p));
    
        Layer lyr("Raster");
        lyr.add_style("raster");
        m.addLayer(lyr);
    }
