Main features and advantages of JPEG 2000

JPEG 2000 offers much more than standard JPEG format.

In particular, besides its superior compression quality, it gives you a choice of two modes:

  • Lossy or optimised compression, which generates image files roughly 5 times smaller than with uncompressed image formats like GeoTIFF, for example. On the other hand, this compression format can’t be reversed and you can’t reduce the level of image compression.
  • Lossless or regular compression, which generates files half the size of uncompressed image formats. This mode offers more flexibility by allowing you to specify different levels of compression to suit the purpose for which the image data is intended.
