Projects / libgeotiff


libgeotiff is a library (normally built on top of libtiff) for reading and writing coordinate system information from/to GeoTIFF files. It includes CSV files for expanding projected coordinate system codes into full projections definitions and examples of transforming the definitions into a form that can be used with the PROJ.4 projections library. It also includes the sample applications listgeo (for dumping GeoTIFF information in readable form) and geotifcp (for applying geotiff tags to an existing TIFF or GeoTIFF file).
