ERDAS IMAGINE 2020 (64-bit) Update 1


Release Date: Wednesday, November 13, 2019

ERDAS IMAGINE 2020 (64-bit) Update 1 is a full installer (major release) which addresses issues in two critical areas of the original 2020 release, specifically Pyramid generation and the Grow Features operator.

ERDAS IMAGINE®, the world’s leading geospatial data authoring system, incorporates geospatial image processing and analysis, remote sensing, and GIS capabilities into a single powerful, convenient package. ERDAS IMAGINE enables you to easily create value-added products such as 2D and 3D images, 3D flythrough movies, and cartographic-quality map compositions from geospatial data.

This full installer includes all tiers: IMAGINE Essentials, IMAGINE Advantage, IMAGINE Professional, IMAGINE Photogrammetry, and most associated add-ons.

Separate downloads are available for ERDAS IMAGINE 2020 (32-bit) Update 1 and ERDAS ER Mapper 2020, which can be installed, to different directories, on the same computer if desired.

If making use of Concurrent (Floating) license servers it is recommended that you download and install the Geospatial Licensing 2020 software (v16.6.13.3 or later) prior to installing ERDAS IMAGINE 2020 Update 1.
