2002.05.13 02:16 "Interpretating 16-bit images?", by Bad Badtz

Hi,

I need to display a 16-bit GeoTIFF image.
The specs are as follows:
SamplesPerPixel = 1
BitsPerSample = 16
Photometric = 1

Since photometric is 1,do I have to create a color table with 255colors, 
where R=G=B?
How should I interpret each pixel then? Since it is 16bitsPerPixel, do I 
have to scale it down to 8bitsPerPixel?

Thanks!
