PCI Geomatics' Geomatica Supports JPEG 2000

PCI Geomatics announced support for JPEG 2000 in Geomatica and its other image-centric geomatics solutions. JPEG 2000 is a new open industry standard format with the ability to compress any size image. This format has been extended to support geocoded information and is now built into the PCI Geomatics code library so it can be used within all PCI Geomatics software. The JPEG 2000 format joins other popular wavelet compression formats supported by PCI Geomatics, including MrSid and ECW. (PCI Geomatics, Richmond Hill, Ontario, Canada)
