1994.10.05 00:45 "TIFF Geographic Tags?", by Mike Ruth

Does anyone in the TIF user or vendor community know of public domain TIF tags which can be used to convey *geography*. For example, a reference to map projection, datum, coordinates of keypoints, or similar information.

Our purpose is to embed geographic information so that our satellite imagery can be ingested as a TIFF file to a GIS (Geographic Information System).

But we seek only truly "public" tags, not those owned by individual GIS vendors or used in a proprietary manner.

Thanks for any references.... Mike Ruth 4 OCT 94
