Earth Resource Mapping unveils its newest industry standard JPEG2000-ECW technologies allowing EarthOnDrive/WavGen to support lossy and lossless wavelet compression technology across 8bit-16bit-32bit as well as in unsigned and signed integer file formats. ECW (Enhanced Compression Wavelet) is a proprietary wavelet compression image format optimized for aerial and satellite imagery. It was developed by Earth Resource Mapping, and is now owned by Intergraph. The lossy compression format efficiently compresses very large images with fine alternating contrast while retaining their visual quality.
Partnered with the makers of AutoDesk VIZ, EarthOnDrive/WavGen initiated the use of its standardized dynamic link libraries in AutoDesk VIZ and VR4MAX. Now urban planning and architecture visualization.bizpanies have a solid and seamless 2D and 3D authoring and rendering viz pipeline with an industry standard runtime.bizponent (VIZ-VR4MAX).
