Mosaic metadata specification

TiTiler-PgSTAC uses PgSTAC search to host mosaic parameters for performance purposes. To help users we added the possibility to add metadata to search entries and in TiTiler-PgSTAC we introduced a non-official specification to help user storing meaningful informations.

Specification

{
    // OPTIONAL. Default: "mosaic" (No other value accepted for now). Describe the `type` of metadata.
    "type": "mosaic",

    // OPTIONAL. Default: null.
    // The maximum extent of available map tiles. The bounds are represented in WGS:84
    // latitude and longitude values, in the order left, bottom, right, top.
    // Values may be integers or floating point numbers.
    "bounds": [ -180, -85.05112877980659, 180, 85.0511287798066 ],

    // OPTIONAL. Default: null.
    // An integer specifying the minimum zoom level.
    "minzoom": 0,

    // OPTIONAL. Default: null.
    // An integer specifying the maximum zoom level. MUST be >= minzoom.
    "maxzoom": 11,

    // OPTIONAL. Default: null. The name can contain any legal character.
    "name": "compositing",

    // OPTIONAL. Default: null. An array of available assets.
    "assets": ["image", "cog"],

    // OPTIONAL. Default: null. A set of `defaults` configuration to be forwarded to the /tiles endpoints.
    "defaults": {
        "true_color": {
            "assets": ["B4", "B3", "B2"],
            "color_formula": "Gamma RGB 3.5 Saturation 1.7 Sigmoidal RGB 15 0.35",
        },
        "ndvi": {
            "expression": "(B4-B3)/(B4+B3)",
            "rescale": "-1,1",
            "colormap_name": "viridis"
        }
    }
}

Important

  • When using the /mosaic/register endpoint, {"type": "mosaic"} will be set by default
  • All metadata fields are optional and custom fields are also allowed.
