#112 closed enhancement (wontfix)

Add BigTIFF support to azexhdf

Reported by: mggr Owned by: mggr

Current TIFF formats are limited to 2GB, which is an issue with the Eagle & Hawk - large numbers of bands can easily exceed this limit.

Bill says that ERDAS 9.2 supports BigTIFF (and perhaps big geotiffs as a result?). It'd be good to find out the extent of the support and perhaps implement BigTIFF support in azexhdf.

This ticket is to track the issue for now. At some point we may want to take action on it.

  • Component changed from ARSF to az* programs

On a related note, GDAL 1.5.0 has added BigTIFF support - looks like this standard might actually happen :)

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

On the other hand, we think that TIFF is a bit sucky as a format. BIL/BSQ seems to be easier to handle. Closing this ticket for now - may reopen if BigTIFF takes off.
