Latest Version of ERDAS ECW Plug-in for ArcGIS Desktop


The ERDAS ECW Plug-in for ArcGIS Desktop 10.1 has been released by Intergraph. The plug-in is free. This plug-in version will not work on ArcGIS for Desktop versions earlier than 10.1. Esri customers having an earlier version of ArcGIS for Desktop should use the earlier version of the plug-in.

The ERDAS ECW Plug-in for ArcGIS Desktop 10.1 enhances the native ECW / ECWP support Esri has built into ArcGIS for Desktop. This new version of the ECW Plug-in for ArcGIS Desktop adds over 35 enhancements. Among these enhancements are the following:
  • Support for Esri's ArcGIS 10.1 for Desktop, released in June 2012
  • ECW v3 file support has been added
  • Local files will read and store statistics information within the ECW fileheader
  • Display speed of ECW v2 files has been improved when compared to Esri’s default v10.1 capabilities
  • ECWP v3 has been added for improved streaming performance when connecting to ERDAS APOLLO 2013 servers over low bandwidth and secure environments
  • ECWP will continue to work on older ERDAS APOLLO versions
  • An automatic 99% clip is now applied to >8 bit JP2 or ECW v3 files when streamed over ECWP
  • Projection handling of ECWP layers has been significantly improved to support additional EPSG and now also Esri's defined coordinate systems
  • Numerous enhancements to ERDAS ER Mapper ERS and ALG file support
  • Added support for catalog searching of ERDAS APOLLO Advantage 2013 servers
  • Esri’s ArcCatalog now fully supports managing ECW v2, ECW v3, ERS and ALG files
  • Resolved side-by-side compatibility with ERDAS Extensions for ArcGIS. Both products can now coexist in the same ArcGIS for Desktop install

Hi Paul.

Is there any way to get this plugin to work with ArcMap 10.2?

Thanks!
