GeoCompressor License Limitation

[ Edited ]

Hi All,


What is the compression limits in terms of image size that can be achieved with different license level of GeoCompressor? I understand Essentials - 250 gigapixels, Advantage  - 500 gigapixels and Professional - unlimited; what is the interpretation of this in terms of Megabites and Gigabites?


Also can ECWJP2 SDK read-write version perform compression quivalent to GeoCompressor professionals?

Hi Ksewe,


for example, for input image 10000x10000 pixels in heigh and width, the number of pixels is 100,000,000 = 100 Gigapixels
if the uncompressed original/input image is 3 bands (RGB), 8bit, then the size of the image will be 100,000,000 x 3 x 8bit = 2400000000 bit = around 286 MB


Geocompressor use ECW JP2 SDK internally, so the SDK RW should have the similar performance as geocompressor.

GeoCompressor Essentials can compress upto how many Megabites? or Gigabites of image? If someone wants to know the size limitation for each license level.
