I'd be interested in making similar tests myself. I have
access to georeferenced raster datasets as large as 90K x 45K pixels.
I also have extensive experience with GDAL (
library which I have used to process such datasets with success

However, I'm still missing specification of operations to be performed.
Can we describe Phil's use case in form of reproducible steps,
so we can pprogram this use case using with various toolkits/libraries?
As the datasets I have are not public data, I could use the True Marble
Imagery so the results are comparable.

What you think?
