Solution allows customers to quickly and easily read geospatially-registered image data in the JPEG2000 format.

Leica Geosystems GIS & Mapping LLC is pleased to announce that support for JPEG2000 data is now available within its ERDAS IMAGINE V8.6 image processing and photogrammetry product lines. The end result of this collaborative effort between Leica Geosystems and Mapping Science, Inc. (Seattle, Washington, USA) is an integrated solution that allows customers to quickly and easily read geospatially-registered image data in the JPEG2000 format.

The new support solution also adds to ERDAS IMAGINE support for the GeoJP2 format developed by Mapping Science, as well as other compliant JPEG2000 data. GeoJP2 is the first imagery compression and metadata management solution developed specifically for the GIS community. GeoJP2 eliminates dependence on proprietary file formats while introducing features and functionality never before available to geospatial professionals.

“With the JPEG2000 standard, as well as with GeoJP2, image analysis professionals have more choices when storing and disseminating a wide array of imagery,” said Brad Skelton, Vice President, Software Engineering, Leica Geosystems GIS & Mapping.

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. 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.

Leica Geosystems’ ERDAS IMAGINE software suite helps organizations visualize, manipulate, analyze, measure, and integrate any type of geographic imagery and geospatial information into 2D and 3D environments. Technical support, training, custom applications development, and project consulting services are available to aid ERDAS IMAGINE customers with their post-purchase needs.

JPEG 2000 support for ERDAS IMAGINE is now available worldwide. Leica Geosystems customers with existing software maintenance contracts may download the update directly from the Leica Geosystems’ Geographic Imaging support Web site at:
