State of GeoRasterLayer (for Leaflet)
06-28, 15:00–15:30 (Europe/Tirane), Lumbardhi

We will discuss the state of GeoRasterLayer, a JavaScript library that renders GeoTIFFs directly on a LeafletJS map without a server. This will include an introduction of new features, including the following:
- shifting warping off the main thread to a pool of web workers
- improved support for extent calculations by increasing vertex density of polygon representations of bounding boxes
- high-resolution support by using geowarp

We will also look to the future and discuss the following:
- support for raster types other than GeoTIFF/COG
- geozarr support
- similar integrations into other web mapping libraries

Audience feedback and ideas will be most welcome!
