ST_AsGDALRaster — Return the raster tile in the designated GDAL Raster format. Raster formats are one of those supported by your compiled library. Use ST_GDALDrivers() to get a list of formats supported by your library.
bytea ST_AsGDALRaster(raster rast, text format, text options=NULL, integer srid=sameassource
Returns the raster tile in the designated format. Arguments are itemized below:
format format to output. This is dependent on the drivers compiled in your libgdal library. Generally available are 'JPEG', 'GTIff', 'PNG'. Use ST_GDALDrivers to get a list of formats supported by your library.
options text array of GDAL options. Valid options are dependent on the format. Refer to GDAL Raster format options for more details.
srs The proj4text or srtext (from spatial_ref_sys) to embed in the image
Availability: 2.0.0 - requires GDAL >= 1.6.0.
SELECT ST_AsGDALRaster(ST_Union(rast), 'JPEG', ARRAY['QUALITY=50']) As rastjpg FROM dummy_rast WHERE rast && ST_MakeEnvelope(10, 10, 11, 11);
One way to export raster into another format is using PostgreSQL large object export functions. We'lll repeat the prior example but also exporting. Note for this you'll need to have super user access to db since it uses server side lo functions. It will also export to path on server network. If you need export locally, use the psql equivalent lo_ functions which export to the local file system instead of the server file system.
