Difficult to read large one strip G4 GeoTIFF files
|Reported by:||warmerdam||Owned by:||warmerdam|
Large 1bit one strip G4 compressed tiff files can be very difficult to read in GDAL because the entire file is treated as a singe 8bit block making the memory representation 8 times the size of the decompressed 1bit image.
Libtiff can automatically split uncompressed images into smaller blocks but cannot do this for compressed files. So in theory the problem exists for all one strip compressed images but it is much more common for the 1bit compressed files.
