ERDAS ECW Image (*.ecw)

The Earth Resource Mappings ECW format is used to achieve high compression for image data.

In GIS it can be used for satellite imagery and aerial photographs.

ECW uses ‘wavelet’ technology to view part of the image at the required view scale. ECW has no file size limit for reading data and allows unlimited size export.
