Hi Even,

Thank you for the advice. I thought a bit further and mixed-source overviews are also common in tile cache storages (MapCache, MapProxy) or when GeoPackage is used as an outputformat for WMS (GeoServer). There seems to be some need for having an easy general method for copying overviews. Let's see if someone appears with funding or just implements it.

That's certainly doable (pending someone actually implementing it) and probably something that could be generalized at the gdal_translate level

In the meantime, you can achieve a similar result with for example gdalwarp (in update mode) and using the GPKG ZOOM_LEVEL open option.


- gdal_translate small_world.tif small_world.gpkg -of gpkg

(the full resolution data is at zoom level 1)

- gdal_translate small_world.tif ovr.tif -outsize 50% 50% -scale 0 255 127 255

(create a brighter overview)

- gdalwarp ovr.tif small_world.gpkg -doo ZOOM_LEVEL=0

(populate zoom_level=0, ie first overview level, with the content of this file)

The above can be generalized too as many overviews as needed. You may need to use the -ovr switch of gdalwarp to select the appropriate source overview.
