Avenza Systems Inc., producers of MAPublisher® cartographic software for Adobe Illustrator® and the popular PDF Maps mobile app, is pleased to announce the release of Geographic Imager 4.4 for Adobe Photoshop. This latest update includes significant improvements to read and write performance for all geospatial formats supported by Geographic Imager. This is most noticeable when reading or writing very large files in BigTIFF, DEM, IMG, NITF, and MrSID formats and reading ASCII GRID, FLT, and BIL formats. Many formats read up to 20x faster and write up to 30x faster for very large files.
“We're very excited about this speed optimization for our Geographic Imager users,” said Ted Florence, President of Avenza. “Through some major reworking of our code base, we’ve streamlined how geospatial formats are read and written. This breakthrough will provide our power users with a faster and better performing geospatial image editing platform”, he added. “Geospatial professionals handling very large files will be able to cut processing times down significantly.”
