Abstract. The GeoTIFF interchange standard is an extension of the popular TIFF format, to support a geodetically sound raster data georeferencing capability. The geographic content supported in the GeoTIFF tag structure includes its cartographic projection, datum, ground pixel dimension, and other geographic variables, based upon the non-profit Petrotechnical Open Software Company (POSC)`s Epicentre 2.0 geodetic model. This paper is a review of the progress and status of the GeoTIFF initiative, as well as an overview of the main technical characteristics and principles of the GeoTIFF format.
