Feature request #2839

Description

Tested with rasterlite sample datasets.

Add a rasterlite db (containing just one layer, otherwise you'll hit #1040) through the "add raster layer" dialog. It will show fine.

If you add it through the "add spatialite layer" it will be "seen" as a vector feature and it will be added a polygon with the extent of the raster map.

If you add it through the "add spatialite layer" it will be "seen"
as a vector feature and it will be added a polygon with the extent
of the raster map.

please note: this absolutely isn't a bug, it's an intrinsic design feature
any RasterLite datasource is supported by a Polygon vector table representing the MBR for each single tile (this including any possible pyramid layer). all this is strictly required so to support an R*Tree Spatial Index (i.e. the key feature accounting why RasterLite is surprisingly fast when accessing huge datasources)

#6 Updated by Giovanni Manghi almost 3 years ago

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from Open to Closed

This seems outdated as anyway the future will be a unified way to add layers.
