GeoServer ArcSDE Rasters in GeoServer-1.5.1

With the recent release of GeoServer-1.5.1, the GeoServer ArcSDE Extension has gained the ability to serve ArcSDE raster datasets, as well as the vector datasets it’s been serving so far.

Detailed instructions can be found on the GeoServer ArcSDE Plugin page, and if any crack coders out there want to see support for more ArcSDE raster formats (other than the 3/4-band unsigned byte format we currently support) then help us get coding!

If you’re itching to see an example in action, check out this map or this map.

Happy rasters!

    Hi, I get an invalid url format type error message (even with appropriate values) when trying to create a new CoverageStore. Do you have any ideas?
    “Invalid url: ‘sde://scott:tiger@localhost:5151/gis#SDE.MY_RASTER_TABLE;LZERO_ORIGIN_TILE=0,1438′ for format type:’ArcSDE Raster’.

    Your best bet, generally, is to send an email to

    In this case, I’d suggest reading the documentation page on the ArcSDE datastore. It’s located here:

    Particularly the sections on using the ArcSDE datastore extension.
