I'm currently trying to add CADRG as a datasource in Geoserver 2.6. I've installed the necessary GDAL plugins (1.9.2) for Geoserver 2.6.

I placed my RPF folder in

C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 7.0\webapps\geoserver\data\data\CADRG\RPF which contains the a.toc file and the folders that contain my CADRG tiles.

I'm getting the error

Could not list layers for this store, an error occurred retrieving them: null

I know the a.toc file is properly created as I've tested it in other software, and the tiles are good as I've viewed them in QGIS 2.4.

As far as I know I have all of the tiles in the correct folders, so I don't think the paths are wrong. Does anyone have any experience loading CADRG and could help me guide me in the right direction?


I know my GDAL plugin installation worked correctly as I have been able to add a geoTIFF store successfully, and I know my CADRG tiles are valid as I've been able to add an individual tile as an NITF store.


I checked the a.toc file with gdalinfo and I saw that it said the tiles did not exist.

My directory structure was:

  • RPF
    • CHARTS
  • a.toc

Turns out I needed the CHARTS folder to be in the parent folder with the a.toc file, not in the RPF folder. I did this, and I was able to create the store.
