ERDAS IMAGINE 2011 Coming Soon

Here we are again, another year later and ERDAS is about to put out another software release. ERDAS IMAGINE 2011 will meet its scheduled release next month. At this time, I will not cover what all is in 2011, as that is for the World Tour Events and soon to be released on the website.

Also, I have spoke with Frank Warmerdam and the integration of the v4.1 of the ERDAS ECW JPEG2000 SDK into GDAL is going very well. It should make the GDAL v1.8 release due out this year as well.

One subject I will speak of on is the ERDAS ECW JPEG2000 SDK use within ERDAS IMAGINE. ERDAS has bumped the IMAGINE Essentials input file size for ECW and JPEG2000 creation from 10Gpixels to 250Gpixels and in IMAGINE Advantage from 100Gpixels to 500Gpixels.

Transparency layers can be created with new compressions in Exporter and MosaicPro. There is a new tool to add ECW Transparency layers to existing ECW files without re-compressing the data too.
