I have a few windows directories that each have many 1000's of Geotiff DSM/DEM files downloaded from LINZ (Land information NZ) These are derived from 1m LiDAR and each file covers a couple km2
I can import these individually, however each directory is 8GB and i have given up waiting importing by dragging over all TIF, its has been left for hours, stops responding at times etc.
I just tried building a virtual raster using one directory as input, it lists 18586 files as directory includes prj, aux, xml tfw supporting files. However I get error message "Incorrect Parameter value for INPUT"
Google has not been my friend and i cannot find a way to access these easily.
I'm looking for a solution where they get rendered as needed and access / manage 10,000's raster files across NZ using whatever is 'best practice'
Hope someone can point me in the right direction! I've been using QGIS for years and use Postgres for some vector files.
I don't think this is version related - i have tried LTS and 3.18
