There are two ways to Import a TIFF file in ILWIS 3.8.4: through the
ILWIS driver and through the GDAL driver. I have noticed that we missed
supplying the DATUM.DEF file when ILWIS 3.8.4 was released, which is
required by the ILWIS TIFF import. I have attached the missing file to
this e-mail. Just save it there where it is expected (in the
"Resources\Def" subdirectory of the ILWIS installation folder). This
will re-enable the ILWIS TIFF driver.
However, you may still want to try both drivers when importing a file,
for example the ILWIS TIFF driver does not support the LZW compression
and the BigTIFF format. But getting the data-type and the projection
right may be more successful with the ILWIS TIFF driver.
When I want to import Geotiff files in ILWIS 3.8.4, I face this starnge problem that the import menu doesn't have any options to select from! It looks like this picture:
I know it must have the followng options to choose from: ILWIS/ GDAL/ Postgres/Aster/ActiveXdata objects/OGC
But mine only has the first option (e.g ILWIS), and I cant choose my Geotiff file from the GDAL option.
I have actually worked with this option couple of months ago and I had no problem, but now suddenly they are gone!!
