Raster Layer GeoPackage

Demonstrates how to show a raster layer using a geopackage.

How it works

To add a Raster Layer as an operational layer from a GeoPackage:

  1. Create and load a GeoPackage, specifying the path to the local .gpkg file.
  2. When it is done loading, get the GeoPackageRasters inside with geoPackage.getGeoPackageRasters().
  3. Construct a RasterLayer with the GeoPackage Raster in the list you want to use.
  4. Add the raster layer to the map as an operational layer map.getOperationalLayers().add(rasterLayer).
