Feature request #2839
add rasterlite support in "add spatialite layer" or add new button "add rasterlite layer"
|Pull Request or Patch supplied:||No||Resolution:||wontfix|
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)
