I've been given 100 GB worth of MrSID files (about 2,300) and been asked to create one map with them that can be hosted in GeoServer.
I originally attempted to put all of these tiles into a layer in ArcMap but after adding about 1/3 of them, the program just crashed. After that, I did a lot of research about MrSID files and GeoTIFF files and based on the limitations of my own system (500GB HD) and the target environment, hit a bit of a dead end.
Thus the move to GeoServer. The goal is to be able to host the data, in what format I'm still not sure, and only access the portion we need in the client application.
I was starting to think that a Mosaic Dataset through ArcMap was the best approach, but I'm not sure if that can be integrated into GeoServer.
How would you go about this problem?
