What is a GeoTIFF?

The GeoTIFF stands for Geographic Tagged Image File Format. It was initially developed during the 1990s. Geographic TIFF is a format extension for storing Georeference and Geocoding information in a TIFF format. It can store a broad range of geo-referencing information, as well as projected coordinate systems. Supported projections include UTM, US State Plane and National Grid, as well as the underlying projection types, such as Transverse Mercator, Lambert Conformal Conic, etc.

Geographic TIFF uses 32-bit offsets, limiting its extent to 4 gigabytes. The Geographic TIFF format embeds geospatial metadata into image files such as Aerial photography, Satellite imagery, and digitized maps so that they can be used in GIS Applications.
