VSI Virtual File System Support¶
Support for GDAL’s virtual file systems, accessible via a /vsi-prefixed path.
All configuration parameters are specified in a
vsi.properties file. Any configuration option listed in GDAL’s documentation. is available as a key in this file. You can specify its location on your system with the
-Dvsi.properties.location option. An example configuration providing OpenStack credentials may look like:
OS_IDENTITY_API_VERSION = 3
OS_AUTH_URL = https://swift.provider.com/v3
OS_PROJECT_NAME = test-project
OS_USERNAME = firstname.lastname@example.org
OS_PASSWORD = example-password
OS_USER_DOMAIN_NAME = Default
OS_PROJECT_DOMAIN_NAME = default
This extension adds ‘VSI Virtual File System’ as a possible raster data store type. The only values required when choosing this type is a connection path. This is identical to the connection paths specified in GDAL’s documentation. You may also chain GDAL drivers together by concatenating their prefixes, as in the example below.
