I have many raster tiles (in tif format, SR WGS84) and, since all together are very heavy, I want to unify them in a geopackage.
I've tried to do that in QGIS, performing the following steps:
- converting all the raster in PNG format,
- creating a geopackage from the Browser panel (Create Database > No geometry)
- simply dragging them into the geopackage created ---> Import succesful
but: the original rasters have a single band, while once added to the geopackage they have 4 bands.
Is there a way to create a Geopackage that contains all my raster tiles (about 850 tiles) maintaining only the 1 original band?
