I have 3 rasters, each is in the same SRS but with differing extents

I want to combine them into a single tile set using gdal2tiles.py


gdal2tiles.py -z '2-4' -e -p raster -r average --s_srs EPSG:27700 raster1.tif /tiles
gdal2tiles.py -z '5-8' -e -p raster -r average --s_srs EPSG:27700 raster2.tif /tiles
gdal2tiles.py -z '9-12' -e -p raster -r average --s_srs EPSG:27700 raster3.tif /tiles

When I try this the tiles are not centred correctly when zooming from 4 to 5 and then 8 to 9. I suspect this is due to inconsistent extents of the rasters. Or am I missing something else? Should I be wrapping them in a virtual raster


Came here looking for the same thing. I'm trying an alternative approach of merging the multiple .tif files into one. Check out: Merging tif images into a single GeoTiff with QGIS

  • A VRT would probably be the easiest, not the fastest way. – bugmenot123 Aug 2 '19 at 11:13
  • @bugmenot123 pls expand 'VRT' and share a link if possible? – Nikhil VJ Aug 3 '19 at 7:03
