a file format that embeds image registration information directly into a raster file; an industry-neutral raster file format widely used and recognized by all of the major GIS software vendors. ESRI began support for Geotiff at version 7.0 of ARC/INFO and version 3.0 of ArcView. Geotiff represents an effort by over 160 different remote sensing, GIS, cartographic, and surveying related companies and organizations to establish a TIFF-based interchange format for georeferenced raster imagery
GeoTIFF refers to TIFF files, which have geographic data embedded within the TIFF file. The geographic data can then be used to position the image in the correct location and geometry on the screen in a geographic information system.
enhanced Tiff format that has georeferencing information
a special type of TIFF image which already contains the registration information within the image itself, and is registered (or georeferenced) automatically when imported in WMS
A special expanded version of the TIFF6 standard used for various purposes, especially for DRGs, that provides for embedding topographic information. Embedded geo-referencing removes the need for a companion world file, though one may be provided for compatibility.
Geographic Tagged Image File Format - The Australian Hydrographic Service produces charts in GeoTIFF format known as Seafarer GeoTIFF.
A standard for storing georeference and geocoding information in a TIFF 6.0 compliant raster file.
