I have a new challenge to compress large size of satellite image from 59GB to 10GB as maximum size by Open Source GIS software to publish it to GeoServer.

When in doubt follow Paul Ramsey's GeoTiff compression for dummies strategy.

gdal_translate \
  -co TILED=YES \
  5255C.tif 5255C_JPEG_YCBCR.tif

and if you need overviews too then add

gdaladdo \
  -r average \
  5255C_JPEG_YCBCR.tif \
  2 4 8 16
  • thank you very much @Ian Turton, i did not use gdal command before, any guideline about that? – GIS Man Jun 4 at 10:37
  • just copy and paste the above, changing the filenames as required – Ian Turton Jun 4 at 10:38
