I have a folder containing 79 tiled Geotiff rasters making up a basemap of the UK. My goal is to efficiently store these in a Geopackage which already contains some vector data also used for base mapping.
- The tiled images are all single band paletted images, and are 8 bit unsigned integers.
So far I have tried merging all tiles into a mosaic using the merge tool in QGIS 3.0.3. I enabled the "Grab psuedocolor table from first layer" option and then tried selecting an appropriate data type. They did not have 8 bit unsigned integer so the closest I got was 16 bit unsigned integer (I am not sure if this messes things up).
Is it possible to nicely stored these into a Geopackage or is it not possible yet?
