Raster support in MapCentia GeoCloud2 (GC2) and new server images

Raster support
Since PostGIS version 2, raster has been supported in the database. The raster data model can dramatically increase the use of PostGIS as a analytical and visualization tool. For example elevation models and a lot of environmental data are based on the raster data model.

Now GC2 supports PostGIS raster data. Raster layers will be displayed in the list of layers in the database tab and you can manage them in the same way as vector layers. Raster layers will also be added to the tile and WMS services and you may classify them. You can also query the raster tables through the SQL API.
