I haven't setup or deployed any web services and most help seems to be around vector data... I need input on how to set up and optimize an image service with GeoServer, PostGIS to use in OpenLayers client.
Images are in 32 bit float, GeoTIFF, time-series images (Sentinel-2, Landsat-8) for disconnected areas (think like Hawaii, Montana, Ontario, Alberta), i.e. same area will have different dates of imagery over time and some areas might have images of the same date. Want to serve old and newer imagery as they become available and so some automation will be nice. Want the user to be able to see the images and be able to view/query pixel values (e.g. NDVI).
Do I setup a folder to which images are downloaded to and this folder sync images to the raster folder in GeoServer and updates the image service? Can this be fully- or semi-automated?
