Build Virtual Datasets from a list of existing datasets. More information: https://gdal.org/programs/gdalbuildvrt.html.

  • Make a virtual mosaic from all TIFF files contained in a directory:

gdalbuildvrt {{path/to/output.vrt}} {{path/to/input_directory/*.tif}}

  • Make a virtual mosaic from files whose name is specified in a text file:

gdalbuildvrt -input_file_list {{path/to/list.txt}} {{path/to/output.vrt}}

  • Make a RGB virtual mosaic from 3 single-band input files:

gdalbuildvrt -separate {{path/to/rgb.vrt}} {{path/to/red.tif}} {{path/to/green.tif}} {{path/to/blue.tif}}

  • Make a virtual mosaic with blue background colour (RGB: 0 0 255):

gdalbuildvrt -hidenodata -vrtnodata "{{0 0 255}}" {{path/to/output.vrt}} {{path/to/input_directory/*.tif}}
