Install Instructions:


  • Please refer to the attached GeoCompressor 2018 User Guide.

This full installer includes:

GeoCompressor Essentials

GeoCompressor Advantage

GeoCompressor Professional




  • Geospatial Licensing 2018


Fixes and Highlights include:


    • Clipping and Resampling
      • Resampling of cell size to support pyramid creation or just smaller images
      • Clipping
        • Prior releases always forced the output image extents to match the input 
        • 2018 now supports clipping to a region, to support “cookie-cutting
    • One to Many Outputs
      • Region support has been extended from selecting only one region to optionally producing many outputs
        • Workflow: one mosaic input, one shapefile but with 20x features
        • With 2018, via the UI it can automatically create 20x outputs based on each feature geometry
      • Vast workflow improvement for many data providers who often need to produce many image outputs clipped to an administrative or other region
    • New GUI and XML options for JP2 output: progression order (RPCL, LRCP, RLCP), precinct and tile size, markers and quality layers 
    • New GUI and XML options for writing GML in JP2 and/or GeoJP2 georeference boxes 
    • Specify band-list setting in GUI for inputs
