What is the difference between the possible TIF formats?:- Internet TIFF- Internet TIFF64- GeoTIFF
The Internet TIFF is a raster image format that was developed by Bentley Systems. The Internet TIFF is a stable image format that contains caching, geo coordinate information that is used when attaching the raster image and displays quickly when attached in a DGN file.The Internet TIFF64 raster image format was also developed by Bentley Systems for large images. Like the Internet TIFF raster image format it contains caching Geo coordinate information and displays quickly when attached in Raster Manager in a DGN file. If a user needs to convert a highly compressed cache image format like MrSID or ECW to an image format that can be edited in Raster Manager they are able to use the Internet TIFF64 raster format. Other raster image formats like TIF and Internet TIFF will fail when used as the output format when doing the conversion of a ECW or MrSID image.If you are using raster images with another application other than a Bentley Systems application it is recommended that you verify that the application can read the Internet TIFF and Internet TIFF64 images.GeoTIFF raster image stores the coordinate system information so when you attach a Geo TIFF image it knows where to attach the raster image in a DGN file.In the MicroStation Help File there is a list of supported raster image formats.
