The US National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA)
is proposing a profile of GeoTIFF to be used within the National System for
Geospatial-Intelligence (NSG). The intent is to have some standard format for
imagery where a format such as NITF is too cumbersome. I have not been involved
in this work, but being aware of it and in the interests of wide community
review, I pass on these documents for any review and comment. Thanks to Frank
for hosting these documents.
Bear in mind that this profile
is meant to be simple. So, for example, for maximal interoperability there are limitations
on coordinate systems. Also the profile is only intended for georectified data.
