I have and SLD with following rule

      <se:Name>Primary Pole</se:Name>
        <se:Title>Primary Pole</se:Title>
      <ogc:Filter xmlns:ogc="http://www.opengis.net/ogc">
            <se:OnlineResource xlink:type="simple" xlink:href="svgs/type1.svg"/>

and for creating the base64 representation of this rule i am using below code

 // assuming we  will provide only point
 BufferedImage image = null;
 image = Glyph.point(rule);
 ByteArrayOutputStream bos = new ByteArrayOutputStream();
 ImageIO.write(image, "png", bos);
 Base64.Encoder encoder = Base64.getEncoder();
 String imageString = encoder.encodeToString(bos.toByteArray());

but issue is the when i show it on client when height and width is 16 image is displayed fine but when i increase the height and width the generated base64 image is blured (pixelated) what i think its generated the image w.r.t the size in rule is there any option to ignore it and provide my own size? Or is there a better way to generate the legend.


This is actually much harder than it looks - see GeoServer's BufferedImageLegendGraphicBuilder class for the full gory detail. The key step seems to be the method calcSymbolSize:

    private double[] calcSymbolSize(
        double defaultMaxSize,
        double defaultMinSize,
        FeatureType featureType,
        Feature feature,
        final Rule[] rules) {
    // check for max and min size in rendered symbols
    double minSize = defaultMaxSize;
    double maxSize = defaultMinSize;

    final int ruleCount = rules.length;
    for (int i = 0; i < ruleCount; i++) {
        Feature sample = getSampleFeatureForRule(featureType, feature, rules[i]);
        MetaBufferEstimator estimator = new MetaBufferEstimator(sample);
        final Symbolizer[] symbolizers = rules[i].getSymbolizers();
        for (int sIdx = 0; sIdx < symbolizers.length; sIdx++) {
            final Symbolizer symbolizer = symbolizers[sIdx];
            if (symbolizer instanceof PointSymbolizer || symbolizer instanceof LineSymbolizer) {
                double size = getSymbolizerSize(estimator, symbolizer, defaultMaxSize);
                // a line symbolizer is depicted as a line of the requested size, so don't go
                // below min
                if (size < minSize && !(symbolizer instanceof LineSymbolizer)) {
                    minSize = size;
                if (size > maxSize) {
                    maxSize = size;
    return new double[] {minSize, maxSize};
