Wasn't there a suggestion that the TIFF/IT format could be used, as it allow tiling of multiple TIFF files? I'm not very familiar either with TIFF/IT or tifflib. Presumably this would NOT be a quick fix, as TIFFLIB doesn't handle TIFF/IT and neither do most existing TIFF-based applications.

Is TIFF/IT still alive? I don't hear much about it lately.

Dan,

Sorry, I don't know enough about TIFF/IT to comment. There are a variety of schemes for tiling TIFF files to represent larger datasets, all of which can presumably work fine. That doesn't mean they are very interoperable though.

Best regards,
