How to Save Time and Storage Space with Industry-Leading Imagery Compression

What's New for the Industry's Leading Compression Technology?

It’s been 20 years since Hexagon released the Enhanced Compressed Wavelet (ECW) file format. In that time, a lot has changed across the geospatial industry. Many novel, and not so novel, image storage strategies have come and gone. New data types like 3D and point-clouds have also appeared. But the one thing that has remained constant through all this change, managing geospatial imagery and earth observation data is still a challenging and costly endeavor for many organizations.

In this webinar, we’ll discuss how ECW continues to be the most efficient geospatial image file storage format for its unmatched ability to balance the demands of speed, quality, and size.

Join us as we discuss:

  • Selecting storage formats for organizational efficiencies
  • Reducing storage requirements, data duplication, and unnecessary data translation
  • Practical use cases and geospatial imagery compression strategies
  • New enhancements to ECW’s core technology and associated products
