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¶
Ensure to match plugin (example 2.23-SNAPSHOT above) version to the version of the GeoServer instance.
Extract the contents of the archive into the
WEB-INF/libdirectory 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.
