Advantages and disadvantages of using TIFF/GeoTIFF files to store coverage values

Started by Jordi ESCRIU Replies (1)

Coverages within the INSPIRE context shall be encoded in GML - completely or partially (several options available: multipart representation, external file encoding, inline encoding) - See this discussion topic.

For the first two options mentioned (multipart representation / external file encoding), a well-known image file format such as TIFF/GeoTIFF shall be used to encode the range set, i.e. the values stored in the coverage. These file formats are commonly implemented and used in Member States for such a purpose.

This discussion topic is intended to pick up a comprehensive list of advantages and disadvantages of using the TIFF/GeoTIFF files to store the values of the coverages (e.g. for Elevation or Orthoimagery data).

Please, feel free to participate with your experience in this topic.
