Hello everyone. I can't crawl TIFF images in ERDAS APOLLO Data Manager. But I can crawl IMG and ECW images. I can't find any solution how to do this. Does anyone know how to do it? Thank you very much.

If it is a coordinate system Issue you can sometimes work around the problem if you know the correct SRS.
It can sometimes help to set the "default SRS" for the aggregate before crawling.

are you able to see the TIFF image in the Add Resource menu of the ERDAS APOLLO Data Manager? If you can't see your file you have to modify your decoder.yaml file in the ERDAS APOLLO configuration directory config\erdas-apollo\providers\coverage. Please take a look at the template of the tif configuration (starting in line 37 in the default decoder.yaml file). The template is configured with a regular expression. Per default you are only allowed to crawl TIFF images with the ending .tif or .tiff in lower case. Please change the line from
There have to be two spaces at the beginning of the line. With this modification you can crawl TIFF images with the ending .tif or .tiff case insensitiv.

We already modified the decoder.yaml file. TIFF images are now visible in the Add Resource menu but still cannot be crawled in the Data Manager. Do you have an idea what the problem is? Thank you very much.

ERDAS APOLLO is using different decoder classes to read TIFF files.
Are you able to open your TIFF image in ERDAS Imagine? Does the crawl job in the jobs menu contains some information about invalid geometric information in your TIFF image?
We had some TIFF images that could not be read with the default image decoder, so we changed the order of the handlerClassNames in the decoder.yaml to the following
With the GDAL decoder as the first decoder we were able to solve our image crawl problem.
