Question

Why are pyramid layers built with ESRI ArcGIS 10 not recognized by ERDAS IMAGINE?

Answer

The pyramids layers built in ESRI ArcGIS 10 are stored in an OVR file (*.ovr) instead of a RRD file (*.rdd). The *.ovr filename extension is reserved for annotation layers in ERDAS IMAGINE, which is why it does not recognize the pyramid layers built in ArcGIS.
