Black border after running rio mask


ts@...
 
Edited

Dear Rasterio developers and users,

I' m masking geotiff files with geojson polygons:

rio mask --overwrite --crop in.tif out.tif --geojson-mask mask.geojson 

Unfortunately after doing so black artificats showing up around the cropped area.



Is there a way to avoid this artifacts?

It looks like your input.tif may have lossy compression applied, and the output will have the same compression by default. You might try

rio mask --overwrite --crop in.tif out.tif --geojson-mask mask.geojson --co COMPRESS=NONE

Thanks for your help Sean,

I can confirm the black artifacts come from jpeg compression.
I also found this answered which explains the problem in detail:
