I'm working with a lot of rasters (dozens of thousands) and would like to store them for a while. They will be used intermittently, but never all at once! The size of VRT (~2 kb) is such a positive for me, because I can store a year's worth of rasters with less than a GB for cost, whereas before I was dealing with upwards of 50 GB when using TIF.
I'm just worried that maybe I don't fully understand the VRT file type. I've tried to look at documentation and don't see anything wrong with doing this.
Do you think this is OK?
