Is there any preliminary implementation of a BigTIFF libtiff? I see there are sample files, and I'm wondering how they are created. I would like to volunteer to do beta testing. I could probably help a bit with the implementation if someone told me what to do next...


I believe Joris prepared his sample files with custom code of his own. We do intend to implement bigtiff support in libtiff, but it is awaiting a settling down of existing libtiff work - perhaps soon after the 3.7.1 release. I would add that implementing bigtiff inlibtiff it isn't a job that is efficiently shared amoung several developers. This is the reason, I haven't delved in myself since I can't really commit the time to do a good implementation of it myself. I prefer to wait for Andrey even though the wait is painful. :-) I have been wanting BigTIFF for quite a few years.
