Well, yes, we do. We write stuff that is even smaller than that. For
aerial photography, you can get into the centimeter range if you fly low

What we do now is limit the file size to under 2Gig (for compatibility),
and produce hundreds or thousands of files. State and local

governments, especially Department's of Transportations like to have the entire count or even the entire state photographed every few years. This is an enormous tracking problem, and if the files could be larger, there would be fewer of them, reducing the tracking problem.
