I want to use the OpenGeo Suite to publish different sets of raster imagery with associated data. Doing this with vectorial data works fine:
- Setup the data base in postGIS: import the vectorial data, create tables containing data describing the objects.
- Setup a data store in GeoServer: make a connection to the data base.
- Setup a layer in GeoServer: combine vectorial data and attributes with a SQL view.
After that I understood that I can easily access attributes via
GetFeature requests to a WFS. However, the same with raster data instead of vectorial data seems not to work like that. One can import raster data from postGIS (via the ImageMosaicJDBC plugin) but I see no means to link it in the same way as above.
I'm new to web mapping, so: Is it my ignorance of the matter or the lack of a feature in GeoServer?
