I am trying to serve a large (1GB+) GeoTiff file using GeoServer and ImageMosaic.
iant have written a simple guide for this, which he proposed as an answer for a previous and similar question.
I have used his gdal_retile example and this gave me a folder with lots of tiff files and 8 subfolders (1-8, level 1 having the most zoomed tiles and level 8 a small overview tile).
I created an ImageMosaic store in GeoServer 2.1.3 and pointed my URL to the folder containing the tiff files and the 8 subfolders. GeoServer then put 8 files in the same folder.
I published my ImageMosaic store as a layer and when doing a preview inside GeoServer, Java just starts working and I don't know if it will ever finish.
What am I doing wrong here?
