For the last few years, we have been writing a Windows32 Tiff handling system (Trapeze) designed to handle any legal TIFF File. It may not be what you want, but we would be keen to work with you in achieving your aim if you're interested. Our Test Tiff files are 20,000 pages long, and we claim to be able to store maps and print them to scale of over 20 miles in length. It would be of assistance to us, to find out if we can live up to our claims! We think we understand TIFF writing and reading as well as anyone in the world. We don't use libraries of any sort (not event the C library as it has bugs that prevent the handling of large files itself!) If you want to have a preliminary look, Trapeze can be downloaded from www.onstreamsystems.com.
I hope this is of some help to you.
