When making WMS requests to view band 1 of a two band imagemosaic layer the image returned isn't always valid. Sometimes I only get an image with a very sparse set of pixels. Whether or not the returned image is correct or not seems to be dependant on a combination of the bbox and width/height parameters.

First here is a request along with a "good" image that is returned. Notice that the width and height are 256x270.

However the image I really want should have a width and height of 256x256 When I make that request I get a bad image:

I can also get a valid image by leaving the width and height at 256, but shifting one of the bbox params. For instance changing the first bbox value to -13018754 works although the image is warped as expected:

Here is the band1 style:

Any ideas as to why the second image doesn't look more like the first image?

Below is the log output for the 2nd request (the one that displays the bad image):

  • What is in the log file? – Ian Turton Aug 23 '16 at 19:44
  • @iant I've attached the log output for the misbehaving request. – apricity Aug 23 '16 at 21:26
  • a version 1.3.0 GetMap request should be using CRS=epsg:3857& not SRS=epsg:3857& not sure if that is part of the issue here – nmtoken Jul 9 '19 at 17:27
