NITF Format (NTF)

The NITF (National Imagery Transmission Format) file format is a raster file format created by the United States Department of Defense (DoD). For more information, refer to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Imagery_Transmission_Format.

The default extension used by this format is: NTF.

Certain LEADTOOLS toolkits support version 2.1 of this file format.

Certain LEADTOOLS toolkits support complexity level (CLEVEL) 3.

This file format does not support progressive loads and saves, multi-page files, stamps, or Lossless JPEG compression.

NITF files contain both raster and non-raster data and so NITF files cannot be saved using the standard raster library. Use the separate NITF library to create and save NITF files

Support for this file format can be unlocked using the following support constant: L_SUPPORT_NITF. Beginning with version 17, NITF support is unlocked automatically by any of the following keys:
