Hi all.
SpatiaLite and RasterLite have recently been released:
RasterLite supports pyramids and tiles. Sample files available here:
Both are extremely interesting, filling up a gap of functionality (a
personal geoDB, raster and vector) in the  freeGIS arena. The vector
part is now quite usable thanks to the QGIS data provider (plus
spatialite-gis), but to have both fully integrated into the freeGIS
stack the right way to go is to plug their support into GDAL/OGR. I see
a number of advantages in this, eg all grass rasters could be moved to a
RasterLite db and accessed for analyses through r.external.
Are there plans to implement this? As the APIs are quite simple, it
looks an easy task.
All the best.
