Hexagon Geospatial announces the immediate release of GeoCompressor 2018 Update 1 for Windows and Linux, which includes many new features, as well as resolution of various customer-reported issues.


GeoCompressor 2018 Update 1 is a stand-alone, high performance geospatial image and point cloud compression application designed to simplify the creation of ECW, JPEG2000, and HPC formats. Issues resolved include the following:


  • Customer hang that could occur when mosaicking JPEG2000 input files.
  • Inconsistent warning about thread count “exceeding CPU Core count.”
  • Clarified handling of input files where an unsupported GeoTransform is detected in the input.
  • UI errors referring to CompressionUtil.cpp when attempting to batch compress multiple images, or images without georeferencing.
  • Null and data block counts are now correctly logged, where previously they were only printed to the console.
  • Actions were takento ensure binary consistency across Windows and Linux generated outputs.
  • Fixed crash caused by a custom bandlist order. It will now honor the band count and order specified when mosaicking.

For additional information please refer to the attached GeoCompressor 2018 Update 1 User Guide.
