The gt-coverage module provides a way to build and use highly structured grids of numeric values such as imagery data, for instance GeoTIFF format files, or multi-dimensional matrix data, like that found in NetCDF format files.


The gt-coverage module is responsible for:

  • implementation of the coverage interfaces from gt-opengis such as GridCoverage2D and Format
  • Bridging between Java Advanced Imaging, JAI Image IO and Java Image facilities and the geospatial idea of a GridCoverage
  • Recognising additional formats available on the CLASSPATH using GridFormatFinder

The module supports the use of coverage information (i.e. raster) from a range of sources.
