  • GeoCompressor Essentials

Selected Highlights 

  • Clipping and Resampling

  • Resampling of cell size to support pyramid creation or just smaller images

  • Clipping

  • Prior releases always forced the output image extents to match the input 

  • 2018 now supports clipping to a region, to support “cookie-cutting

  • One to Many Outputs

  • Region support has been extended from selecting only one region to optionally producing many outputs

  • Workflow: one mosaic input, one shapefile but with 20x features

  • With 2018, via the UI it can automatically create 20x outputs based on each feature geometry

  • Vast workflow improvement for many data providers who often need to produce many image outputs clipped to an administrative or other region

  • New GUI and XML options for JP2 output: progression order (RPCL, LRCP, RLCP), precinct and tile size, markers and quality layers 

  • New GUI and XML options for writing GML in JP2 and/or GeoJP2 georeference boxes 

  • Specify band-list setting in GUI for inputs
