Supported raster types in GMSC 2020

[ Edited ]

I cannot seem to find a documentation stating which raster types are supported to use in GMSC 2020. Can someone direct me please?

Re: Supported rater types in GMSC 2020

Hi Eran,

 

This is what I found in the 2016 documentation (I doubt there's any change in 2020):

 

Supported file formats:

Tested by the Product Center:

  • PNG

  • TIFF

  • ECW v2

  • JPEG

ECW v3 is supported by GDAL 1.11.1 which is used by GMSC 2016.1

If you check the list of GDAL supported formats ( http://gdal.org/1.11/formats_list.html - Compiled by default), than you will see that GDAL supports a huge number of raster formats.

In addition the GMSC 2016 setup installs the following plugins (see [GMSC_INSTALL]\Program\Gdal\x64\plugins) .

  • FITS (.fits)

  • Bathymetry Attributed Grid (.bag)

  • Oracle Spatial GeoRaster

  • GMT Compatible netCDF

  • Hierarchical Data Format Release 5 (HDF5)

  • Multi-resolution Seamless Image Database

  • NetCDF

Please note that all these formats will not be tested by the GMSC team and we can't guarantee that any of these formats still work after a version upgrade.

---

In addition to that, you can use whatever format is supported by GeoMedia / WebMap, in case of usage the WebMap integration feature. By that I mean rasters registered in the GDO Warehouse.

Thank you for your answer Jan. The ECW support is what I was searching for (though not sure why ECWv3 is not used natively and tested, being a proprietary format of Hexagon). But I can't wonder does GMSC 2020 (which came late 2019) supports a higher version of GDAL than 1.1 (which is quite old)? If not, does GMSC 2021 does?

ECW v3 and GDAL 1.11.1 support was added in 2016 EP01, and 2018-later.

As per the NuGet gallery, the version 1.11.1 was the latest stable version when the GMSC libraries were updated, which happened in later 2016.

https://www.nuget.org/packages/GDAL/

 

Newer GDAL version was released in 2018...
