Thanks Ethan,

I'm very new to GDAL, so forgive me if i'm wrong, but isn't gdal_translate used to translate between GDAL formats? How is postgis a GDAL format? It doesn't appear in the list of formats that are supported by GDAL that you posted below...

Thanks in advance,

I think the tool you should use is gdal_translate.

Usage: gdal_translate [--version]
       [-ot {Byte/Int16/UInt16/UInt32/Int32/Float32/Float64/
             CInt16/CInt32/CFloat32/CFloat64}] [-not_strict]
       [-of format] [-b band] [-outsize xsize[%] ysize[%]]
       [-scale [src_min src_max [dst_min dst_max]]]
       [-srcwin xoff yoff xsize ysize] [-a_srs srs_def]
       [-projwin ulx uly lrx lry] [-co "NAME=VALUE"]*
       [-mo "META-TAG=VALUE"]* [-quiet]
       src_dataset dst_dataset

Hello list,

I've got a postgis table with approximately 500000 rows. I would like to
extract that data at various scales into georeferenced tiff images. How
do I do this? What programs can I use?

Thanks for your help,
