Hi Leopold,

I can partially answer your question.

Use TYPE RASTER and DATA "wienumgebung.tif". Make you sure you include the right path to your tif file.

I don't know if Mapserver (GDAL) can read the rrd files which are Erdas files if I am not mistaken for pyramids, but if you are worried about performance you can always make internal overviews in your tiff file using gdaladdo.

gdaladdo -r average abc.tif 2 4 8 16

I would suggest looking at the Raster HOWTO:

Hi list,

I have a satellite-picture conisting of 4 files:

1. How can I make it shown? I tried to put it in a map file like this
(attachement) but for example I don't know what to put in 'TYPE ????'

2. The whole database is a file about 1,7 GB. My testfile wienumgebung.tif
has only about 60 MB. - I think the Gis programm makes the files aux and rrd
to split the big file in a tree of files with different solutions for
different zoom faktors. How can I intergrate them to let my whole satellite
picture be shown in each zoom/solution?

best regards - Leopold
