I don't think that GeoTools can manage this out of the box. But the code shouldn't be too hard to knock up to handle your use case. The Image Tutorial will get you started with reading in and writing out geotiffs. There is certainly tiling code available in the new GeoPackage module that might already do what you need. You might also find JAITools (a ...

Use TileMill or MapBoxStudio or if you have lots of Maps/Charts in GeoTiff then MapTilerPro. For ArcGIS for Desktop you can use Arc2Earth Extension to create Tiles. Are you looking to create XYZ, TMS or MBTILES sqlite database? For mobile app use mbtiles. For web TMS, check out http://www.maptiler.org/google-maps-coordinates-tile-bounds-projection/ for ...

ENVI can handle this directly. there is a layer stacking tool (Basic Tools > Layer Stacking) to create composite bands.

You should add exact info about the current situation to the question. Such info can be obtained from the gdalinfo report http://www.gdal.org/gdalinfo.html, from the image layer properties that QGIS is listing (Layer properties - Metadata - Properties) or by listing the GeoTIFF tags with the listgeo utility http://www.remotesensing.org/geotiff/listgeo.html. ...

GDAL is the software component used by QGIS to open rasters. The georeferencing data is normally embedded in the GeoTIFF file, however (from GTiff): If no georeferencing information is available in the TIFF file itself, GDAL will also check for, and use an ESRI world file with the extension .tfw Essentially GDAL is only using the georeference data from ...

The use of world files pre-dates GeoTiff, I can remember using World Tiff images in the 90's back when JPEG was a new and misunderstood format, there was no GeoTiff, I can't remember the exact year but it would have been around 2002 when I first heard of software using the 'new' format that didn't need a world file. Some software still doesn't support ...

This seems to work for me - I'm using the Admin Boundaries from Natural Earth and a Blue Marble jpeg (with a hand cranked world file) and this code which gives me this image. Without seeing your actual datafiles my suspicion is that you have a tiff file with either no world file or a broken one instead of a geotiff. If that is the case then you should be ...

The default output format for the tiles is jpeg and jpeg can't be made transparent. You must create tiles in png format. The GDAL KMLSUPEROVERLAY format is for some reason undocumented but with creation option "format=png" you should be able to create png tiles which support transparency. Even there is no documentation about the driver in the GDAL web site ...

I would advise creating a shapefile of image boundaries using QGIS and the Image Boundary Plugin. The following screenshot shows the results of using the plugin on 4 geotiffs.

There are many solutions for your question, some more suitable than others based on constraints such space/memory available in your servers. The client side looks like simple because you do not want to overlay any other layer at this moment, so leaflet or openlayers can help you. The server side is a bit trick, since you need to decide how to provide your ...

Another option you could explore is using Tilemill to generate tiles from your GeoTIFFs. You can then just put the tiles on a webserver and call them using Leaflet. No need to set up databases or middleware. Basically you load the GeoTIFFs into TileMill and export it as MBTiles. This is MapBox's format for storing the tiles in a SQLite database. You then ...

I'd start with GeoServer on the server side. You just need to put the files on the hard drive, create an ImageMosaic store, then publish whatever layers (perhaps just one) you need. The ImageMosaic is the critical part - that will turn your collection of aerial photographs into a single image. Note that there are likely to be some artifacts where the images ...

You could look into Tilestache. This tutorial may help get you started with what you want to do.
