Scott Foshee (who manages all imaging standards for Adobe) and I spoke today and we would like the community to know that we are supportive of BigTIFF being moved from its current state into a formal open international standard by building on top of an already existing open standard for TIFF – that being TIFF/EP (https://www.iso.org/standard/29377.html). We would recommend that the work take place at ISO as well, so that others can then build on top of it as they have with TIFF/EP itself, and would also make it easier for Adobe to participate (if that is desirable by the community). However, we understand if the OGC or others would prefer some other formal SDO.
I will note that this is response is *ONLY* about BigTIFF and does not have any impact on any other conversations around GeoTIFF or others that may be ongoing.
