ImagePyramid

Note

GeoServer does not come built-in with support for Image Pyramid; it must be installed through an extension. Proceed to Installing the ImagePyramid extension for installation details.

An image pyramid is several layers of an image rendered at various image sizes, to be shown at different zoom levels.

Installing the ImagePyramid extension

  1. Visit the website download page, locate your release, and download: geoserver-2.22-SNAPSHOT-pyramid-plugin.zip

    Warning

    Ensure to match plugin (example 2.22-SNAPSHOT above) version to the version of the GeoServer instance.

  2. Extract the contents of the archive into the WEB-INF/lib directory of the GeoServer installation.

Adding an ImagePyramid data store

Once the extension is properly installed ImagePyramid will be an option in the Raster Data Sources list when creating a new data store.
