Geotiff

A file format that embeds image registration information directly into a raster file; an industry-neutral raster file format widely used and recognised 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 organisations to establish a TIFF-based interchange format for georeferenced raster imagery.
