Leica Geosystems has reached an agreement with Mapping Science Inc. to build a support solution for JPEG2000 data within ERDAS IMAGINE’s image processing and photogrammetry product lines. The end result of this collaborative effort will be an integrated solution that allows customers to both read and write geospatially-registered image data in the JPEG2000 format quickly and easily.

The JPEG2000 data support solution is expected to be available by April 2003.

Mapping Science President Walt Wiley said, “We are pleased that Leica Geosystems has selected us to do this important work, and look forward to a mutually beneficial partnership. The Mapping Science team believes strongly in the promise of JPEG2000 and GeoJP2, and appreciates Leica Geosystems’ recognition and affirmation of our efforts.”

Added Brad Skelton, Vice President, Software Engineering, Leica Geosystems GIS & Mapping, LLC, “The JPEG2000 standard, along with GeoJP2, provides professional image analysts with additional choices when looking at the storage and dissemination of a wide range of imagery.”

Mapping Science is focused on the customization of the JPEG2000 compression standard for still imagery (ISO/IEC 15444) to meet the needs of the mapping and GIS community.

Mapping Science offers consulting and custom solution design services including JPEG2000 integration strategies in addition to the development and distribution of a suite of products based on the newly adopted image compression standard.
