Re: How to export data from ArcGIS and use in Ilwis
I see that you are using an older version of ILWIS (version 3.4), please
try again with the latest one (ILWIS 3.8.5). The TIFF import is
In ILWIS 3.8.5, import the tiff file as follows:
File->Import->Geospatial Data Abstraction Library(GDAL)->raster->GeoTIFF .
If you don't need it, leave the "Use as" checkbox "OFF".
Use as = ON will only create a metadata (.mpr) file. The tiff file will
be used everytime you open and read the raster image.
Use as = OFF will make a copy of the binary data of the tiff file (the
copy is in the .mp# file). Thereafter the tiff file is no longer used
and can be removed.
"Use as" would save diskspace, but you may encounter some operations in
ILWIS that do not work well with "Use as" data (the operation was not
yet adapted to "Use as" data).
