Enhanced compression wavelet (ECW) is a high-performance compressed file format designed specifically for geospatial imagery. When compared to other image compression formats, ERDAS’ patented ECW technology provides the industry’s fastest decompression and compression rates possible. Remarkably, this is done without placing a heavy load on computer memory and processors, while also maintaining high compression ratios and visually lossless image quality.
ERDAS provides a range of products enabling full use of this unique technology, from creating, reading, and serving ECW files, to enabling their use within browsers, other commercial applications, or applications you create.
To learn more about ECW and find the right product for your needs, visit the new ECW page on www.erdas.com/ECW.

Successful monitoring of this balance involves a constantly evolving database requiring frequent
Recently, ERDAS technology played a key role in updating the built-up and impervious layers of Europe, covering 5.8 million square kilometers and spanning 38 countries. A largely automated process, the update was implemented with ERDAS IMAGINE’s Model Maker, a graphical tool that enables users to easily develop models as flow charts. Read more
