WCS output formatsΒΆ

WCS output formats are configured coverage by coverage. The current list of output formats follows:


  • JPEG - (format=jpeg)
  • GIF - (format=gif)
  • PNG - (format=png)
  • Tiff - (format=tif)
  • BMP - (format=bmp)

Georeferenced formats:

  • GeoTiff - (format=geotiff)
  • GTopo30 - (format=gtopo30)
  • ArcGrid - (format=ArcGrid)
  • GZipped ArcGrid - (format=ArcGrid-GZIP)

Beware, in the case of ArcGrid, the GetCoverage request must make sure the x and y resolution are equal, otherwise an exception will be thrown (ArcGrid is designed to have square cells).
