Can I import WCS-Data only for the current region by
I tried to import raster data from my WCS into GRASS GIS, using r.in.gdal as proposed in http://grasswiki.osgeo.org/wiki/Global_datasets#OGC_WCS_-_Albedo_example .
Then I added an BBOX definition to the XML file as follows:
<WCS_GDAL> <ServiceURL>http://localhost/mywcs?</ServiceURL> <CoverageName>blw.eros_z</CoverageName> <Timeout>90</Timeout> <GetCoverageExtra>&BBOX=2596000,1181000,2597500,1182500</GetCoverageExtra> </WCS_GDAL>
However, r.in.gdal just starts to load the whole dataset in 2MB chunks, ignoring my BBOX argument. r.in.gdal also lacks a
-r option, what would be even better.
Altough, when I try to manually download my region extent with a browser, it works well and I get the wanted GeoTiff file for my extent:
Background: I have large raster files (12 x 1 GB, erosion risk data of CH http://s.geo.admin.ch/bb8ef7c7f) with overlapping areas. Instead of patching everything together with r.patch (did work well for 2 rasters, less for >10...), I want to get only the area of interest per WCS (Mapserver 6.4.0).
