i have a folder of tif and tfw files and i'd like to show the raster in a map using geoserver. Even reading the geoserver tutorial for this kind of datastore (http://docs.geoserver.org/stable/en/user/data/worldimage.html) i coldn't find the way to show the raster. In the same folder i have also other files (shape, aux, properties, ..) but i don't know if they are useful for publish the map or not.

Can you please tell me how to do? Thank you.

Sorry but i couldn't figure out how to configure the pyramid of tiff. Is there a way to configure geoserver or directly openlayer in order to show the folder of tif?

Can you please post here an example? Thank you

You should just be able to add and single raster by going to "Add Raster Data Source": http://docs.geoserver.org/stable/en/user/data/geotiff.html

I don't believe you'll need anything other than TIF and ECW files.

Alternately, to load a directory of TIFs, you may wish to read this mailing list thread: http://www.mail-archive.com/geoserver-users@lists.sourceforge.net/msg08652.html
