I have a grid (can be in shapefile and can be also in coordinates) and I need to know how can I create tilings with it to Landsat 8 images (16 bit images), selecting the output tile size, the overlap.

I have tried with MapTiler but it doesn't work with that images (16bit) and also with gdal2tiles.

I tried installing GeoTools or SimpleTiles but I couldn't and I don't know if it's an easiest way.


The landsat must be preprocessed before rendering, during the preprocessing you can probably convert to 8bit GeoTiff anyway.

Then rendering of large areas can be easily done with http://www.maptiler.com/

For tips how to process the landsat8 see:

gdal_translate with -co "TILED=YES" should work for your task
