Cloud Optimized GeoTIFF (COG) creation and validation plugin for Rasterio.
Source Code: cogeotiff/rio-cogeo
Cloud Optimized GeoTIFF¶
This plugin aims to facilitate the creation and validation of Cloud Optimized GeoTIFF (COG or COGEO). While it respects the COG specifications, this plugin also enforces several features:
- Internal overviews (User can remove overview with option
- Internal tiles (default profiles have 512x512 internal tiles)
Important: in GDAL 3.1 a new COG driver has been added (doc, discussion), starting with
rio-cogeo version 2.2,
--use-cog-driver option was added to create COG using the
$ pip install -U pip $ pip install rio-cogeo
Or install from source:
$ pip install -U pip $ pip install git+https://github.com/cogeotiff/rio-cogeo.git
It is recommended to use GDAL > 2.3.2. Previous versions might not be able to create proper COGs (ref: OSGeo/gdal#754).
