GRIB format

Installing the GeoServer GRIB format extension

  1. Download the extension from the nightly GeoServer community module builds.


    Make sure to match the version of the extension to the version of the GeoServer instance!

  2. Extract the contents of the archive into the WEB-INF/lib directory of the GeoServer installation.

Configuring GRIB dataset

For configuring a GRIB dataset the user must go to Stores –> Add New Store –> GRIB.


Note that internally it is used the NetCDF reader, which supports also GRIB data.

Current limitations

  • Only WGS84 output CRS is supported
  • Input coverages/slices should share the same bounding box (lon/lat coordinates are the same for the whole ND cube)
