I am new to GeoServer. I'm using the latest version as of time of post on windows 10 running as a windows service.

I have published a single geotif. Each pixes has a value between 0 and 7, and I want to see each value as a color in the Raster. When I add the geotif to ArcMap, somehow ArcMap knows what the colors are.

How do I tell geoserver to do symbology on a Raster (Geotif file on my local disk)?

  • Why don't you simply read the manual ?

You will need to provide a Style other than the default raster style (which just uses a linear stretch between black and white). See the SLD Cookbook for examples of raster styling.
