Creating and editing a Raster Store

The first step in uploading your raster datasets is to create a Raster Store. This can easily be done using our Data Management app. Following this step-by-step tutorial to upload a raster dataset:

The Data Management interface is available at: “www.{your_organisation}.lizard.net/management/”.

After landing on this page, please click on ‘Data Management’, then ‘Rasters’. Click on “New Raster” NewRaster to open the form for new Rasters. Or choose an existing raster to edit.

  1. Choose the organisation you’re supplying data for.

  2. Choose the organisations you want to share this dataset with.

  3. Choose the preferred authorisation type (read more).

  4. Give the dataset a name.

  5. Describe your dataset. Make sure to name the source and describe the analysis that resulted in this dataset. Users can read this description in the Lizard Catalog.

  6. Choose how your data should be aggregated. This functionality is only needed when you want to use the Region Analysis mode in Lizard Portal or Lizard API.

  7. Choose the observation type of this dataset.

  8. Choose a preferred color map. Choose “Rescalable” if you want to be able to rescale the color map in Lizard Portal.

  9. Fill in the supplier name. We use your username by default.

  10. You can fill in a supplier code for your own administration.

  11. If you’re supplying a temporal dataset. Choose “Raster Series”. Next, fill in the interval of the dataset.

  12. Click submit. You have now created the Raster Store. You’re all set up to supply your geotiff’s using the upload button.
